Grades K-1: Art and Museum Introduction

My First Museum Visit
(Fine Art, Language Arts, Social Studies)

Introduce your students to the fascinating world of Glenbow Museum. Inquisitive young minds will learn from the exhibits through exploration and artifact handling. They will discover the meaning of the words museum, gallery, exhibit and artifact and uncover the stories that can be told by what they see and feel. The program includes a mini-museum in a box to take back to your school for students to sculpt an artifact and create a work of art.

Explore the Basics
(Fine Arts, Language Arts)

We live in a visual culture! Learn how to slow down, look deeply, and read the vocabulary of art: line, shape, and colour in one of Glenbow's art galleries. Using all of their senses, students will collaborate in small groups to create a floor collage using materials that support their exploration and understanding of these concepts. The group collages are disassembled at the end of the program.
