AFTER YOU SCHEDULE: Pre-Visit Primer You will receive an e-mail confirming our visit. This e-mail will include an image that will be highlighted in our lesson. Please take a few minutes to share this image with your students and have a short discussion prompted by the three simple VTS (Visual Thinking Strategies) questions included in the message to build interest and curiosity about the upcoming lesson. ARTworks Outreach Classroom Visit When we visit your classroom a museum artist instructor will provide a lesson overview and student rubric that will be used throughout the lesson. Students will learn about an artist and art process, then engage in a compare-and-contrast discussion about the works. Students will apply ideas from the discussion in a hands-on art-making process. Problem solving and personal expression are encouraged! After completing the lesson, the class will engage in a group critique of finished artwork. The instructor will revisit the rubric with the students to evaluate student learning. You will receive a lesson evaluation form via e-mail from the museum Education Coordinator, Liz Salisbury, inviting you to provide valuable feedback.
