Creativity in the Classroom: [email protected] in the Community May, 2014

This exhibit is an outcome of the bass museum’s three-year initiative to work more closely with teachers in the Miami-Dade Public School system. Sponsored by a grant from the John L. and James S. Knight Foundation and the Florida Department of Cultural Affairs, the [email protected] program provides training  and visual resources that teachers use to foster greater creativity in the classroom.

In the fall of 2013, the museum hosted a series of professional development workshops that introduced the Design Thinking method of project-based learning. More than 75 teachers toured our permanent collection and special exhibitions. They were challenged to design lesson plans that would use the art to make cross-curricular connections. The teachers ranged from Kindergarten to high school teachers and included language arts specialists and art teachers.

This is only a sample of the spectacular results of their classroom experiments.

As one can see in this display, the students produced a wide variety of material, composing visual narratives, paintings, sculptures and drawings.  We commended all of the teachers for their efforts to bring this work to our museum to share with the public.

Attention parents and educators: [email protected] lesson plans are available online in the education section of the bass museum’s website,

We commend the following teachers for their efforts to bring this work to our museum to share with the public:
Mirena Suarez, Ada Merritt K-8 Center I Wesly Alvarez, Ronald W. Reagan High School I Alejandro Rodriguez, Mater Lake Academy I Vilma Quevedo, West Hialeah Gardens Elementary I Natalia Burgos, Bass Museum of Art

In addition to the student work being displayed in the Lindemann Family Creativity Center, a portion of the work travels to Miami Beach City Hall to be displayed in the lobby of the 4th floor.
