Visiting artists collaborate with teachers to elevate the art experiences in classrooms and inform literacy in the arts for students. Students and teachers work with visiting artists to build multi-literacy opportunities. Students create products in literacy, visual and performing arts that reflect how they comprehend text, themes, and essential questions driving unit work.
Museum visits help students enter and comprehend text, and also develop literacy in the arts. Museum educators work closely with teachers around themes and texts to create connections that may be unexpected, such as the connection between Light/Dark/Black/White at The Addison Gallery of American Art with The Odyssey (Homer).
