Get Smart with Art
Get Smart with Art is a three part program for grades 4–12 that supports the California state content standards in language arts, social studies and visual arts. The program includes free curriculum materials with easy to implement preparatory lessons, a guided tour and thematic art activity.
Prior to the museum trip, teachers are asked to prepare students with free sample Get Smart with Art lessons. Docent tours through the galleries highlight works studied in the classroom and encourage dialogue about the art and cultures represented. In the art studio, students explore key artistic concepts through a range of materials that connect to the artwork they've seen in both the classroom and the galleries.
