K-12 Educator Night: Visual Arts with Maria + Modernism

Educators, you are invited to a virtual educator event with the Heard Museum on April 17 from 5 to 7 p.m. for Educator Night!

Join us for an evening of professional learning and classroom resources. This virtual Educator Night will feature the expertise of the Heard Museum’s Chief Curator, Diana Pardue. Pardue will provide a 45-minute presentation on Maria Martinez (1887-1980), the San Ildefonso Pueblo ceramic artist who is one of the most widely celebrated artists of her time. Martinez’s work was transformative during the age of American Modernism. The innovations of Martinez’s work have inspired generations to come.

Jason Garcia (Santa Clara Pueblo Tewa), a ceramic artist, will join the virtual event to share his experience with art and how Maria Martinez has influenced his artwork. Garcia’s work is heavily influenced by Santa Clara Pueblo history culture. 

The evening will also provide a presentation from the Heard Museum Learning and Engagement team on downloadable classroom resources and grade-level classroom integration.

This program will be presented via Zoom. This is a free event, but registration is required. Click the link above or here to register.
