The Stefi Altman Seminar for Educators / A Workshop on “Returning: The Art of Samuel Bak”
March 3, 2012 9:00 AM - 1:30 PM
Location Avrohm I. Wisenberg Multipurpose Learning Center
Join the Education Department for a half-day teacher workshop that focuses on “Returning: The Art of Samuel Bak,” a new exhibit on view at Holocaust Museum Houston Feb. 17, 2012 through Aug 12, 2012. Bak has said of his work, “My paintings are meant to bear personal testimony to the trauma of surviving.” In “Returning: The Art of Samuel Bak,” viewers encounter familiar imagery used in unusual, somewhat surrealistic ways as they are led on an astoundingly complex, beautiful and richly colorful journey to, through and from the Holocaust. During this workshop, educators will explore the history of Vilna, Lithuania from World War I through World War II, the implications of this history on the childhood of Bak and study the Holocaust as it occurred in Vilna. Time will be spent connecting Bak’s art to literature and history so that educators are prepared to implement the paintings in their existing lesson plans. The Museum suggests schools or districts send teachers from multiple disciplines to learn about the work of Bak, its ability to transmit and challenge knowledge about the Holocaust and how to develop cross-curricular lessons that support Holocaust pedagogy. The cost for the one-day session – including materials – is $15. Lunch is not included. Visit www.hmh.org/RegisterEvent.aspx to register online. For more information, call 713-942-8000 or e-mail
