Join K–12 educators from around the country in a virtual workshop centered on Hear Me Now: The Black Potters of Old Edgefield, South Carolina. The exhibition provides rich themes to explore in Social Studies, Literature, and Visual Arts classrooms such as highlighting the voices of enslaved artists and emphasizing the tremendous skill involved in creating these vessels. In this two-part workshop, ceramic artist Adebunmi Gbadebo will begin by discussing how she incorporates clay from this region in her work and will share how materials impact her artistic process. Then, middle and high school teachers will share how they have integrated the content of this exhibition into their curricula. This workshop will be recorded and is free and open to the public.
