Capital Day 2014
Figures of Speech

Fri, Oct 17, 2014 10 AM3 PM

Teachers, let the masterworks in our galleries move you on your professional development day out. Come to the Wex for Capital Day and find yourself surrounded by extraordinary figurative works by Pablo Picasso, Alberto Giacometti, and Jean Dubuffet, and be inspired by the ideas of central Ohio poets and writers. Each visiting artist will lead a unique activity designed to engage you with the works on display and help you channel your own ideas onto the page. You’ll leave with numerous ideas to take back to your classroom. At the event, we’ll provide journals, pencils, lunch, and bountiful inspiration. When the time comes, we can also offer a free bus to bring your students back for a visit to try out the activities that you learned on your PD day.

This year’s Capital Day is recommended for K–12 language, visual arts, and writing educators, but any teacher interested in expanding their writing practice is welcome to join us.
