Today I took the 4th graders to the Art Institute of Chicago to see their permanent collection face to face. Students have been spending the past few weeks playing art games to become familiar with the art they would see on this trip. They played:
Art Institute Bingo
I tweeted our trip using the hashtag #drydenartic and archived the images and audioboos below.
The photos from the trip are in a slideshow too.

All of the docents who led your students on tour commented on how much they enjoyed interacting with your students. Your students were described as bright, enthusiastic, and very well prepared to discuss works of art. We thank you for inspiring your students to appreciate art. Working with students like yours is why we love the job we do at The Art Institute of Chicago.
