You Are An Artist!
Students in grades K-5 will explore all the ways they can be artists. Young artists will explore their imaginations, look closely at Clyfford Still’s art, and express themselves. Every artist will receive a sketchbook to record their ideas and observations during and after their museum visit.
- I am an artist.
- I am part of a community of artists.
- I can experience art made by other artists and share my ideas about it.
- My ideas, emotions, and experiences are important.
- Art can be a tool to explore my ideas, emotions, and experiences.
- I can decide what my art is about and how I want to create it.
What will we do?
- Transition into the Museum and introduction to the experience.
- Divide into three small groups and community building with educators.
- Use our imaginations to look at Clyfford Still’s abstract art, then sketch ideas from our imaginations.
- Use our senses to explore Clyfford Still’s representational art, then make art about the things or people that we care about.
- Describe our observations about the lines, colors, and shapes Clyfford Still used. Play a game to start our own abstract artwork inspired by what we saw in the paintings.
- Debrief and transition out of the Museum.
