Artist-teacher Susan Hyde Greene will lead participants in hands-on experiences that explore Girl with a Pearl Earring. Adaptable to all skill levels, the activities can enhance individual appreciation and can be used in classrooms. The workshop is $25 ($10 for museum members) and includes materials and a docent-led tour.
Access Days feature extra blue parking spaces, extra seating inside and outside the exhibition, portable large-print editions of exhibition labels, docent-led tours, audio tours (free for visitors who are blind or visually impaired), and printed versions of the audio tour script. Wheelchairs, folding stools, ASL interpretation (request two weeks in advance) and materials in alternative formats are available upon request.
Dee Kennedy is a retired educator from the California School for the Deaf, Fremont. Alyce Slater Reynolds is a retired professor from Ohlone College. Together, they developed an art appreciation course that they team-taught for several years to high school students at CSD. A deep love for art has led both of them to become DEAF Media Docents. They will lead an ASL tour through Girl with a Pearl Earring. Voice interpretation will be available.
