Investigating Japan’s Edo Avant Garde K-12 Educators’ Workshop & Film Screening (September 23, 2023)
Join us Sept. 23, 2023 from 10 am to noon for a workshop on the film and curriculum units for Edo Avant Garde. The film focuses on paintings of nature in Japan during the Edo period (1603-1868). Filmmaker Linda Hoaglund and master teacher Angie Stokes will take you into the world of Japanese painting during this period, presenting ways teachers can use art to teach about a variety of subjects, from nature to social-emotional learning to studio classes. This workshop is presented by JAPAN HOUSE Los Angeles in collaboration with the National Consortium for Teaching about Asia (University of Pittsburgh NCTA and USC NCTA). Participants can view the film in-person on September 20 or online. They will also be able to have special access to the Japan House POKÉMON X KOGEI exhibition at 9 am that morning.
