This exploration for K-5 students introduces The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art as a place of imagination and wonder. Students will learn what artists are, how they create from real-life and their imagination, and will be encouraged to think like an artist! Your docent will guide students through several works of art, honing observation and analytical skills as we learn to look and examine closely. Students will imagine themselves exploring the world inside of paintings, bring works of art to life by acting out surprising and exciting scenes, and discuss the ways artists represent objects from real-life in different ways. Pre- and post-exploration lesson plans are available to frame your visit, introducing students to creative thinking and tying the museum visit into language arts curriculum.
