Learn about his artistic process and study his images in their historical context. In this interactive workshop, teachers will tour American Chronicles: The Art of Norman Rockwell exhibition, learn about Rockwell's life and times, explore ways to bring Rockwell into K-12 history classrooms, and acquire visual literacy tools. Light refreshments will be served. Advance registration required by January 18.
