Teacher Resources

Cubism and Its Legacy

These resources are designed to help teachers integrate learning at the museum and through the visual arts into the classroom curriculum.


Created by the Hood Museum of Art, Learning to Look is an approach designed to help viewers look carefully and think critically about any work of art.

This resource provides a full-screen image of the painting Guitar on Table by the artist Pablo Picasso.  It also includes details of the painting and guidelines to help you lead a discussion with your students about this work of art. It will introduce you and your students to the five steps involved in exploring a work of art: careful observation, analysis, research, interpretation, and critique. Workshops for teachers on the Learning to Look technique are offered at the Hood Museum of Art periodically throughout the year.


This annotated list of  web resources may be used to help you and your students learn more about cubism.


These two pre-visit activities are geared toward elementary-aged students. The activities help to define and introduce some of the ideas and concepts related to cubism.


This post-visit activity prompts students of all ages to reflect on their experience in the Cubism and Its Legacy exhibition.


Please visit the Hood Museum of Art to see a wide range of original works of art from around the world. There is no charge for admission and the museum is open every day of the week except Monday. Free tours for K–12 school groups as well as programs for adults, teens, and families are available.
