Curriculum based visual arts education for students (JK-Grade 12)

EDUCATIONAL MISSION

Building a strong community-school partnership in arts education is the goal of Homer Watson House & Gallery’s curriculum-based visual art programs. Bringing teachers, students and artists together in a historical setting strengthens the link between museums, galleries and schools.

THE HOMER WATSON EXPERIENCE

While participating in a school program with Homer Watson House & Gallery, students will have the opportunity to think and feel as they explore, problem solve, express, interpret and evaluate. Students will receive the opportunity to expand their knowledge of both art and cross-curricular topics. Classes will be able to participate in a full-length lesson with one of our dedicated professional artists in which elements of design are discussed. Additionally, they will receive a tour of our Gallery and a lesson about the life and time of Homer Watson. Students will be given the opportunity to learn about the rich history of our region and witness some of the tools that Homer Watson used to create his masterpieces. Participants will view many of Watson’s painting and local artists’ exhibits before creating artwork of their own.
*Please note that most programs can be modified into an outreach program.
*Minimum of 15 students of a $90.00 flat rate applies
