Although the current pandemic limits our capacity to host large groups of visitors, we remain available as a resource for WVU, the community, and the state of West Virginia. We’re here to help your group or class continue to engage with the art in our exhibitions and collections.
On Tuesday and Friday mornings from 9:00 am - noon, museum education staff are available to host virtual K-12 “field trips.” The field trips will consist of a walk-through of current exhibitions with 4-6 stops at selected works of art for more in-depth looking and questioning. The themes and content of these stops can be tailored to your curricular needs. Teachers will also be provided with lesson plans for a related art-making activity.
University instructors can arrange similar virtual tours for their students based on their class schedule and educator availability (not limited to the K-12 timeframe).
Virtual tours must be booked at least 3 weeks in advance.
In addition to virtual tours, the museum staff is here to support you and your teaching in a variety of ways, including:
To arrange any of the above, please contact educational programs manager, Heather Harris at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are planning to offer a free virtual programming for the general public and we invite you to consider including them in your syllabus or lesson plan. Event descriptions will be posted as they are confirmed. Museum staff are available to help you link the content of the programs to your curricula.
In addition to the synchronous options detailed above, the museum also has art kits and videos available online for you and your students. If you have any questions about the content of these resources or need more information about the artworks featured, please contact educational programs manager, Heather Harris at email@example.com.
