Teacher Institute at the MCA’s most immersive and collaborative professional development program for educators. This free, year-long program is designed to help you investigate, plan, incubate, and implement innovative, contemporary curricula. The emphasis of the Teacher Institute is on supporting teachers in developing socially engaged art projects for the classroom. Socially engaged art uses artistic strategies to respond to issues of importance within a local community and is collaborative and participatory.
