We've all heard that a picture is worth a thousand words, but what about a historical object? Join Museum educators as we examine paintings of historical events alongside objects from the Museum’s latest special exhibition, Liberty: Don Troiani’s Paintings of the Revolutionary War. Participating teachers will get a sneak peek at featured paintings and material culture from the exhibit while investigating how close-looking and analysis of them can be a gateway to student understanding of the people, places, and events of the American Revolution. 

Register for this free workshop. Check back for future workshops exploring the themes and stories from the Museum’s special exhibit, Liberty: Don Troiani's Paintings of the Revolutionary War

The Liberty Workshop Series is presented in partnership with the American Battlefield Trust.
