Bringing Art to Children and Children to Art

“Having access to museums at an early age sets the tone for further exploration of ones culture by developing skills to interpret visual language.” ~Kathy Unrath andMick Luehrman

Museums:

  • Museums are not limited to just one. There are many different types.

    • music, history, science, wax, pop culture, sports, etc.

  • Remember that the ability to visit these museums depends on the location of your school

  • In Pennsylvania we are lucky to be surrounded by multiple cities that house different kinds of museums

  • Not everyone is as fortunate so sometimes you need to bring the museum to your children

  • Discussion Question:

  • Have you ever visited a museum during your years in school? If so, please describe that experience.


Portable Museums:

  • http://www.e-flux.com/journal/view/50

  • In the text we saw that the teacher created a museum.

    • We thought that it would be more beneficial if the students created the museum on their own.

  • By creating portable museums you bring the lesson to life and cultivate a better appreciation for the process of creating art.

  • In our classrooms we thoughtthat giving our students a theme related to a prior lesson, such as space or a specific president, would be better than having them focus on a specific artist’s work.

  • Discussion Question: If you were having your students create a portable museum what topic would you have them focus on?


Thoughts on the Article:

  • The article was specifically geared towards art teachers

  • Museums can benefit our students if we go to a history or science museum and combine a lesson with both subjects (cross-curriculum)

  • If these museums are not close to your school you can have your class create their own museum

  • The article made us think back to the videowe watched where the CLC students created their own museums and explored their own topics
