Indian Education for All and Contemporary Art

Apr 21

Join Mike Jetty, Indian education specialist from the Office of Public Instruction, and Jenny Bevill, MAM's educator and outreach specialist, for a workshop exploring the newly revised Seven Essential Understandings of IEFA (Indian Education for All) through the lens of contemporary American Indian art.
This training connects with the exhibition "Love Letters to the Collection," in MAM's dedicated Lynda M. Frost Contemporary American Indian Art Gallery. Explore the breadth of this exhibition featuring contemporary American Indian art, while looking at language and vocabulary, appreciation vs. appropriation, and creating space to amplify Native voices. Participants experience an increased comfort level in teaching IEFA and using MAM and contemporary art as a resource.
Teachers of all grade levels and disciplines are welcome. Take away strategies you can use. E-mail Jenny Bevill, educator and outreach specialist, at jenny@missoulaartmuseum.org for more information or to RSVP.
