Educator Speaker Series: Decentering Whiteness in Art Education with Alisha Mernick
Fri, 03/05/2021 – 10:16
Decentering whiteness in our classrooms requires much more than teaching “diverse art.” In this workshop, you will learn how to explicitly name and disrupt the erasure and tokenization of BIPOC artists in traditional, eurocentric pedagogies and adopt best practices for fostering cultural pluralism and critical consciousness.
