In a city defined by two rivers, From the Schuylkill to the Hudson: Landscapes of the Early American Republic, an exhibition at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, explores the important and underexplored tradition of landscape painting in Philadelphia.  When combined with primary source documents from the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, teachers can use the paintings and sources as a lens for helping students understand concepts from art history, environmental science, and the history of urbanization, class, and race in early American history.  During this workshop, teachers will have a guided tour of the exhibition and participate in activities focused on visual analysis and critical thinking.  They will leave with samples of materials for their classrooms.

Lunch is provided.
