Session Themes and Resources

About the Children's Museum of the Arts:

  Single Day Experience Overview

Art and Activism

(will be held on March 23, 2021 for the students in Ms. Succar Hansen's class and Ms. Berkowitz and Mr. Divis's class)

During an Art and Activism Virtual Visit, students will investigate the methods and materials artists use to communicate big ideas about the world around us. Artists can question the status quo, record and reflect protest and injustice, and draw attention to what we should protect or celebrate. By exploring the materials and inspiration behind socially-engaged artwork, students can discover how to activate their own values and beliefs, drawing the line between art and activism. This is a great visit for all students and can introduce or reinforce connections between current events and classroom learning. Visits also include curated pre- and post-visit resources to utilize in the classroom to get more out of the visit experience.

  • Look: Students will examine artwork and engage in an inquiry-based discussion appropriate for their age level. 

  • Make: Students will create their own artwork inspired by the artistic processes, materials, and themes they examined. Students / schools will need to provide their own materials.  

    • Project Options

1. Light Portrait

Materials:

• paper

• coloring / drawing utensils (such as colored pencils or markers)

• glue

• construction paper or colorful paper (can be recycled paper such as magazines)

2. Protect or Protest Sign

Materials:

• paper

• recycled cardboard

• colored paper / recycled paper material

• markers

• glue

• scissors

  • Share: Students will share their artistic process with the group, and we will discuss how their artwork could make a cultural or social impact.

Drawn to Language

(will be held on March 24, 2021 for the fourth-grade classes)

While we often think of art as shapes, colors, or images, artists can be drawn to language, too. Whether used for additional emphasis, to define meaning, to further a narrative, or simply to make a joke, language is an increasingly important element in visual art. During a Drawn to Language Virtual Visit, students will examine artists who use accessible materials, processes, and techniques to entice the viewer to examine language in new ways. This visit can help make connections between art and elements of literacy.

Visits also include curated pre- and post-visit resources to utilize in the classroom to get more out of the visit experience.

  • Look: Students will examine artwork and engage in an inquiry-based discussion appropriate for their age level. 

  • Make: Students will create their own artwork inspired by the artistic processes, materials, and themes they examined. Students / schools will need to provide their own materials. 

  • Project: Pop-Up Sculptures

  • Materials:

• paper

• pencil

• markers and / or colored pencils

• glue

• cardboard / cardstock (can be recycled or reused)

  • Share: Students will share their projects with the group and we will discuss how students used scale, form, and language in their artwork.
