Explore works of contemporary art in the 2013 Carnegie International with museum educators through engaging dialogue, writing and art-making activities, collaboration with peers, and independent exploration. Discussions and activities connect students to a guiding question: How do these works of art (in terms of imagery, form, process, and context) show the artists’ take on their experiences? How is this relevant to your own experiences?
K–12 groups will be able to choose from two options for museum visits to the 2013 Carnegie International from October 15, 2013–March 9, 2014 (space is limited):
90-minute Guided Gallery Tour: $10/student
Students will participate in inquiry-based dialogues about thematic groups of artworks with museum educators.
2-hour Gallery-Studio Workshop: $12/student
Students will discuss works of art and engage in related art-making activities in the galleries with museum educators.
