This fall, we invite classrooms to participate in our new online virtual field-trip program for elementary and middle school students. Our program will include a virtual gallery experience and an art-making activity in conjunction with one of our fall or winter exhibitions on view.
Virtual field-trips dates: November 2020- February 2021
Like in previous in-person field trips, teaching artists will lead students through a (virtual) tour of an exhibition on view, where they will make careful observations and discuss the artwork, how it was made, and its themes. Participants will also respond to their experience through guided art-making activities.
Students and teachers will view original artwork currently in our gallery environment, learn from working artists and build observation, discussion, critical thinking and art-making skills along the way.
With support from the California Arts Council, we have funding to cover full program costs for students from public schools in grades 5-8. We can accommodate up to 30 students per tour.
We will be confirming tour dates, and times on a rolling basis. Please check back for more information soon!
