Teacher Workshop Offered

In conjunction with its forthcoming exhibition, Keys to the Koop: Humor and Satire in Contemporary Printmaking, the Hallie Ford Museum of Art at Willamette University presents a free workshop for teachers who wish to bring their classes to see the exhibition.

The workshop is Monday, Sept. 13, from 4 to 5 p.m. in the Roger Hull Lecture Hall at the museum. A reception will follow. Advance registration is required. Please call 503-370-6855.

The workshop will be led by Ron Crosier, an education consultant and retired high school art teacher from Portland. Crosier researched and wrote the teachers kit for the exhibition.

The workshop will help teachers prepare students for a field trip to the exhibition, develop strategies to tour the exhibition and/or design gallery activities for students, and to propose ideas that reinforce the gallery experience and broaden curriculum concepts once back in the classroom.

Keys to the Koop: Humor and Satire in Contemporary Printmaking features the work of 16 printmakers who find humor and satire in contemporary art, fashion, food, religion, politics and popular culture. The exhibition opens Sept. 4 and continues through Oct. 30 in the Melvin Henderson-Rubio Gallery.

The Hallie Ford Museum of Art is located at 700 State Street (corner of State and Cottage Streets) in downtown Salem near Willamette University. Hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The galleries are closed Sunday and Monday. Admission is $3 for adults and $2 for seniors and students. Children under 12 are admitted free and Tuesday is an admission-free day.
