Led by education staff and/or selected docents, students will view, discuss, and respond to selected works during the one-time visit. A creative student response to works viewed through visual arts media will be planned to take place during the visit in the museum’s classrooms. The program details will be flexible, responding to the needs the teachers have to connect to specific content areas such as English language arts, science, math, or social studies. Limited to one class (30 students max). The visit, including a tour of works and visual arts creation in classrooms, will be between 90 – 120 minutes in duration.

Express Yourself! will be designed to fit the needs of individual classroom teachers of students in grades K – 12. Albright-Knox Education staff will meet with teachers in a planning visit at the museum to determine which works of art on view will be used, as well as the content of discussion during the visit to the museum.

This program can be adapted after meeting with the teacher to select works to view and develop an art project that corresponds to additional curriculum areas.
