Think outside the frame with FREE inStill Programs for Schools

inStill Live is a free virtual program facilitated by our talented educators via video conferencing. Just like inStill at the Clyfford Still Museum, inStill Live is interactive, hands-on, and allows students to take the lead. For the health and wellbeing of our community, school experiences at the Museum will be available starting November 2021. This date is subject to change depending on local guidelines and the needs of our students and teachers.

Students in grades 4-12 will explore the theme “Art in Times of Change” to consider the ways changes impact people, both today and throughout history. Through close-looking at Clyfford Still’s art, sharing interpretations and ideas, and creating art, students will also reflect on how art can be a tool to process or respond to the changes they experience in their own lives.

In 2020, we worked closely with local K-3 teachers and students to develop our first program for primary grades. K-3 students can participate in inStill Live to explore the theme “You Are An Artist.” Young artists will explore the big question “What is an artist?” by creating their own art, exploring Clyfford Still’s art, and letting their curiosity and imaginations run free.
