SPECIALIZED PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

What could an immersive and inspiring professional development experience at deCordova do for your department or school?
Half- and full-day programs are designed around your objectives and interests. Great for educators interested in experiential or place-based learning; 2D and 3D art making; and interdisciplinary connections with science, environmental studies, language arts, history, and more. Contact for inquiries and to discuss ideas: Julie Bernson at jbernson@thetrustees.org or 617.542.7696 x4016.

LINCOLN NURSERY SCHOOL/DECORDOVA PARTNERSHIP
