Liberty Arts’ art education program, Explorations, offers students, K-12, a 90-minute visit to our gallery, which includes a docent tour and hands-on art project related to the theme or processes of our current show. Students enjoy learning through anecdotes of the creative process, production techniques and introductory art terms to support later discussion.
Each session includes independent time in the gallery, before meeting as a group to assess the show. The second half of the session is devoted to guiding students through an art project related to the exhibition theme or processes. Projects this past school year have included mask-making, drawing, collage, pointillism painting, and weaving. Curriculum is developed specifically for each show, following the guidelines set through the California State Content Standards for Visual Arts (VAPA).
