THINKING THROUGH ART
March 1 – 8, 2015
In the Learning Center and Project Gallery
The exhibition, Thinking Through Art: Young Artists and Writers, presents art and writing created by students and inspired by the exhibition Lethal Beauty: Samurai Weapons and Armor. This multi-session, museum-based curriculum that culminates in an exhibition, uses the examination of original art as a dynamic source for creating authentic works involving writing, visual art, and media.
Now celebrating its tenth year, Thinking Through Art is presented both in the Museum galleries and the students’ classrooms, and features KMA’s writer-in-residence, poet Pamela Hart, who works in-depth with more than four hundred Westchester County elementary and secondary school students. The curriculum is collaboratively planned with teachers and supports the literacy skills addressed in the Common Core State Standards in English language arts.
