In this virtual version of our celebrated program, K-3 students explore the elements of art—line, color, shape/form, texture, and space—with a SBMA Senior Teaching Artist. The 45-minute Zoom program begins with an interactive PowerPoint presentation and concludes with a hands-on art activity. The teaching methods used in the Museum (Visual Thinking Strategies and Thinking Routines) build skills in reading, writing, speaking, listening, perceiving, and drawing.
