    Mandalas  are geometric representations of celestial palaces and play an important role in the art of Himalayan Asia.  Join us for a professional development workshop for K-12 teachers that explores mandalas through various lenses and modalities. Through gallery conversations, movement activities, and art-making, we will discover how the mandala's symmetry and balance can integrate math, social studies and arts learning and inspire mindful practice in the classroom.

    Professional Development for Teachers

    The museum offers dynamic professional development opportunities for K-12 teachers of all levels and subjects. Explore the role of object-based learning in the 21st Century, consider the intersections of museum engagement strategies and classroom teaching, and discover the arts and sacred traditions of Himalayan Asia alongside the Rubin's dedicated team of museum educators.

    Programs incorporate unique guided tours, hands-on activities in our state-of-the-art Education Center, and curriculum development sessions to consider strategies for connecting with the museum’s resources, methodologies, and exhibitions.
