Studio Art Hour in the Museum


AT THE MUSEUM (60 MINUTES)

This studio class is designed for art classes who want to sketch from the masters. The Museum provides drawing boards, pencils, colored pencils, and watercolor paints. Classes should bring their own paper. Students may sketch from paintings or sculptures in the galleries and then return to our classroom to add color with paint. As another alternative, small bronze sculptures can be set up on the tables in the classroom for sketching. These sessions may be scheduled over several weeks if desired.


HIGH SCHOOL

Styles of Wildlife Art


Session 1 in the school classroom (45 minutes)
Session 2 AT THE MUSEUM (60 MINUTES)

During Session One Students are introduced to the styles of art found at the Museum through a slide show featuring our collection, including primitivism, romanticism, realism, impressionism, and expressionism/fauvism.

Later, at the Museum, students consider their personal preferences for subject matter and style through the “Token Response” game played in the galleries. Each student has the opportunity to talk about their favorite works of art and the reasons why they like or dislike certain pieces.


HIGH SCHOOL

Writing Workshop


AT THE MUSEUM (60 MINUTES)

In this workshop, students tour selected exhibitions in the Museum obtaining information about the artists and the artwork on display. Quotes from some of the artists are used to help students gain insight into the creative process. Students spend the last 30 minutes of this workshop writing in response to a piece of art in the Museum. Basic art materials such as pencils and colored pencils can be provided for illustration of the written pieces.
