The Art of Science—Roberto Burle Marx

July 22–27, 2019

Explore ways artist Burle Marx fused modern art, Brazilian culture and native plant diversity to create distinct landscape designs using bold color and geometric forms. Explore how forms found in nature can provide an inquiry-based framework for learning and art making..

Teachers seeking professional development experience the beautiful collections of the Garden during multi-session institutes or customized workshops. These programs provide a six-day immersion in which participants learn how to make teaching fun through field-tested, hands-on, inquiry-based activities. Participants may earn "P" in-service credits from the New York City Department of Education or up to 175 hours for State License requirements. P-credits should be applied for first with the NYC DOE via The After School Professional Development Program (ASPDP). Then, after registering with ASPDP, you can return to NYBG to register with us.

Cost: $200 (includes curriculum materials, reproducible handouts, and plants)

Teachers interested in speaking with our professional development staff should email or call 718.817.8140.
