Virtual Program, Teacher Leadership Program

Six people stand in a gallery. Seen either from behind or from the side, they direct their attention to a painting that hangs on the wall. Immediately to the right of the painting is a large window, which glares with sunlight. Two other paintings are visible hanging on the wall at left. All the visible faces wear surgical masks.

The Teacher Leadership Program is a free, one-hour workshop on Zoom for educators of all levels and disciplines that meets at 4:00 pm on the first Thursday of the month throughout the academic year. The sessions are led by Jessica Sack, the Jan and Frederick Mayer Curator of Public Education; Amanda “Semente” Caroline de Oliveira Pereira, the John Walsh Fellow in Museum Education; Wurtele Gallery Teachers; and Education Department staff. In this program, educators explore innovative ways to connect their curricula and interest in art with the Yale University Art Gallery’s collection. The sessions also address online and in-person teaching techniques.
