Learning to Look
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 annotated list of web resources may be used to help you and your students learn more about looking at and making meaning from this type of art.
This glossary provides definitions to words used in the pre-visit material and also that are likely to come up during a visit to the exhibition.
The Hood Museum of Art’s collection of Native American art includes nearly 4,000 objects from across North America. The following resources have been designed to help K-12 educators and students benefit from this rich educational resource.
Each of the following downloadable pdf resources is designed to simulate a visit to the museum. Teachers and students are invited on a “tour” of a small group of objects related to a theme. They are encouraged to look carefully at and think critically about each object. Information is provided to support and extend careful looking and conversation.
