Life in Ceramics Teacher Workshop
The Nam Center for Korean Studies will offer an exciting teacher workshop that will immerse participants in Korean culture and history. Ceramicist Kim Yikyung—whose work is featured in the exhibition—and UMMA curator Natsu Oyobe will be distinguished speakers. In addition, Ann Arbor artist Daria Kim will present a ceramics demonstration and Mary Connor, president of the Korea Academy for Educators will lead a session on teaching about Korea. Teachers will visit the exhibition Life in Ceramics: Five Contemporary Korean Artists, as well as UMMA’s permanent collection of celadon and other wares. The day will be punctuated by authentic Korean food and teachers will take away a substantial packet of contextual information and lesson plans for immediate use in their classrooms. SB-CEUs are available ($10 processing fee).
Life in Ceramics: Five Contemporary Korean Artists was organized and produced by the Fowler Museum at UCLA. It was made possible by a major grant from the Korea Foundation. Additional support was provided by Korean Airlines. UMMA’s installation and related programs are made possible in part by the University of Michigan Health System, Office of the President, and Nam Center for Korean Studies, and by the Friends of the University of Michigan Museum of Art, the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
