What is art? Join us on a 360 art adventure of our Whitney Western Art Museum to uncover the answers—and there isn’t just once answer. Art is a painting, a sculpture, and even a beaded moccasin. During this 30-45 minute virtual field trip, students will take a deep dive into forms of art, while participating in activities that help them describe, interpret, and react to art.
The presenter will help students appreciate art by introducing the parts, or techniques, of art (i.e. line, shape, and color). Knowledge of these elements will allow students to decide for themselves what a painting means to them. Does this painting make you feel happy or sad? Why does it make you feel that way? We’ll guide students on this journey into art by asking these questions, and we will save time at the end for students to make a quick masterpiece of their own.
