This workshop will model strategies for integrating visual art and writing in alignment with Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts (ELA). Using artworks on view at SFMOMA as the basis for close looking, analysis, and discussion, participants will engage in activities that address the standards for reading and writing in different modalities. Strategies can be used in the museum as well as in the classroom.
