This week students will hunt for the elements of art, photograph or draw them, label, and create a drawing, collage, or video. This all-school challenge will get students thinking about the building blocks of art while looking closely at objects all around them.
Fourth graders have been preparing for their field trip to the Art Institute of Chicago for week now through interactive games that got them looking, thinking, and talking about the collection at our world class museum a short drive away. Watch our slideshow video and view our LIVE tweets from the event below.
Hey? You made it all the way down here. Thanks for looking!
Do you want to know about the games we used to prep for this trip?
I wrote a post about our resources here. And, I wrote up one game for School Arts Magazine. You can learn more about it here.
We received an email from our head docent on our trip. See her lovely feedback below:
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.
We are the 2nd place winner of the ISTE Technology in Action Video Contest.
