This fall second graders are spending 80-minute weekly art periods at the Guggenheim Museum. Classes begin with visits to the galleries where boys view and discuss artworks with a museum educator. Afterwards, the boys participate in hands-on art-making activities in the museum’s Sackler Center for Arts Education Studio, drawing inspiration from the works of modern masters that they study. In these process-oriented experiences, boys use a variety of media including collage, construction, tempera and printmaking. Projects are designed around themes and concepts that boys explore during their interactions with the masterpieces. In the studio, boys are encouraged to master art skills at an age appropriate level, solve problems creatively, and learn through trial and error and experimentation. The term will culminate in December with an exhibit of student work at the Guggenheim.
