Students from Holy Name School in Camden, NJ enjoying the Visions of Place exhibition, 2015.

 

A first-hand art gallery experience is an invaluable learning tool for students of all ages. Through the Museum Education Program at Rutgers-Camden Center for the Arts, students engage with challenging artworks and subject matters enabling them to: better understand the visual arts, give informed responses to what they see, create their own unique works, and connect their gallery experience to other school subjects and home lifeIn-school and after-school time slots are available.

 

What to expect:

  •     45 minute interactive class which tours the gallery focusing on key concepts of an exhibition(s) of your choice  

  •     45 minute hands-on art activity time during which students create a visual artwork relating to content discussed in the gallery. Students always take what they make!

  •     Resource packets for teachers to aid in integrating exhibition content into the classroom both before & after visiting.   

 

Camden City schools are admitted free of charge. All others $5 per student.
