Our classrooms grow more culturally diverse by the day, and our curriculum should reflect that diversity. While Wisconsin is home to the third largest Hmong population in the United States, our Hmong students remain one of the most underserved groups in our schools. Join veteran art educator Gwen Kong to examine Hmong history, Hmong teaching resources, and lesson ideas to integrate into your classroom practice. You will have time to explore web and print-based resources, and create your own example of a Hmong-inspired art project. This workshop is a great option for your professional development hours!

About POINT Workshops: In an effort to promote and strengthen the connection between UW-Madison and Wisconsin art teachers, the Art Department hosts two, free POINT Workshops every year. These workshops provide an opportunity for local art teachers to meet and converse with each other, access UW facilities, work and learn with MFA candidates, art professors, and k-12 art education experts, plus explore resources to inform their curriculum development or for use in their personal art-making endeavors.
