A Place Where Art Education is Discussed and Explored!

Museum Morning Feature!

by Candie Waterloo

The Museum Morning program at the South Bend Museum of Art is one of the Education Departments longest-running outreach programs for our local schools.  Nearly 200 South Bend Community School Corporation fifth graders come to SBMA for Museum Morning each week from February until May, to both tour our galleries and create art in our studios.

This year, children are learning about non-representational or abstract art and the ways in which color, line and shape can affect a viewer.  They are taught to interpret non-representational art and to use mixed media to create such art on their own artists’ sketchbooks.

If you’re interested in learning more about the Museum Morning program, how to teach visual thinking strategies, or are interested in bringing your own students to SBMA for a tour or studio experience, let us know!
