Elements of Art (Kinder-12th Grade)

During this hands-on tour and art-making experience, students will explore the building blocks that artists use to communicate their ideas–the elements and principles of art. They will investigate how artists manipulate line, shape, color, and other elements and principles, to engage the viewer and to convey mood and meaning.  

Social Studies Through Art (3rd-12th Grade)

In this inquiry-based tour and art-making experience, students will use artwork as a primary source for investigating the phenomenon of globalization at different moments in history. Through hands-on activities and active research, they will explore how innovations in the arts have driven globalization, and will examine some of the social, economic, ecological and cultural consequences of an increasingly connected world.
