Multiple-Visit Programs

Images

Images is a program offered for regional elementary school students in grades 4 through 6 that brings groups to the museum six times during the year. Each visit includes time in the museum where students learn from and discuss original works of art with a professional museum educator. Afterward, in the studio, students complete a hands-on art project that relates to what they looked at and learned in the museum. Images is an innovative art education program that provides students with valuable skills for analyzing and interpreting works of art and increases their understanding and appreciation of the history, customs, beliefs, and artistic traditions of cultures and peoples from around the world.

ArtStart

ArtStart is similar to Images in that it is a multiple-visit program designed for students in grades 1 through 3. Participants visit the museum four times during the year. During each visit, students spend time in the galleries exploring art objects from around the world and in the studio creating their own works of art.

Each Images and ArtStart lesson is a journey of discovery, creativity, and expression. Guided explorations and interactive teaching in the museum enable students to develop critical-thinking skills for interpreting works of art and relating them to their lives.
