Museum Week

Museum Week for Third and Fourth Grades

Immerse your 3rd and 4th grade students in thinking and discovery through hands-on activities, gallery tours and group discussions.

The theme for this year’s Spring and Fall Museum Week Program is SHADOW PLAY! The day will be spent exploring the role of light and dark, solids and transparencies, and optical phenomena in art-making.  Students will use light and solids to create installation art, make and use a pinhole camera, and discover how light and shadow enhance the stories in Maryhill’s collection. They will end the day with Oregon Shadow Theatre’s production of Jack and the Dragon.
