Teaching & Learning
Related Member: Kristine Heykants
In 2020 Minneapolis College partnered with Hennepin Theater Trust to lead a workshop at the downtown public arts high school FAIR School for the Arts. The culmination of the workshop would be banners printed from images made by the students, to be mounted in downtown Minneapolis. Heykants will discuss how this project became all the more salient as the COVID19 lockdown went into place, George Floyd was tragically murdered, and the city erupted in unrest. Heykants will share tools for engaging students in discussions of identity, share artist references, lesson plans, and case studies on collaboration with partner institutions.
