Class visits to local art exhibitions are planned in close coordination with teachers. Visits include: 1) tours of the exhibition(s) with exhibiting artists; 2) hands-on activities that relate both to the artwork on view, as well as the concepts students are studying in school.
ArtEcon offers 5 free class visit opportunities per year, on a first come, first serve basis, with a limit of one per school per year. Opportunities are open to students from preschool – high school ages.
If you are interested in scheduling a class visit, please contact Liz Antle-O'Donnell, Program Coordinator, @ lizadesigns[at]gmail.com.
RECENT CLASS VISITS
Two art classes – one digital arts and the other general arts – from Betsy Ross Arts Magnet School visited Kehler Liddell Gallery. The exhibition on view was Vanishing, a collection of photographs of African wildlife by Penrhyn and Rod Cook. One of the challenges the artists noted was taking pictures of a moving subject. While one group toured the exhibition with the artists, the other tried their hand at either photographing or sketching Karma the dog, aka a moving target.
