HS Program & Museum Week

High School Museum Day: Reading Rodin
Wednesday, April 18, 2018 | 10:15 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Program repeats Sept. 19, Oct. 17 & Nov. 7 (there is flexibility to dates)

A unique experience designed especially for high school art students. Participants will learn about museum careers and take a guided tour of the museum’s masterworks with an eye toward artist intent and technique. The day concludes with a sketching session in the Rodin Gallery where artist Suzanne Krol-Boller will guide students in an exploration of figure drawing. This is a fantastic opportunity for serious art students to further develop their portfolios.

Students also will receive a coupon for a free return visit to Maryhill (for up to four people), and are encouraged to use this opportunity to continue their sketching experience independently.

Schedule:
Tour Experience: “Reading” the Masters: Looking at Art for Understanding, Technique and Impact | 10:15 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
This tour will engage students in reading the symbolic language used by artists, not unlike deciphering a text message! Additionally, time will be spent introducing the myriad of career opportunities in the museum field.

Lunch | 11:30 a.m. to noon
Students will enjoy a boxed lunch in our café area.

Figure Drawing in the Rodin Gallery | noon to 2 p.m.
Maryhill features a gallery of more than 80 works by the French master Auguste Rodin. Students will have an opportunity to experience a unique figure drawing experience in the Rodin gallery led by artist Suzanne Krol-Boller. From blocking to final (drawing?), students will be inspired to look carefully and coached to expand their observational and sketching talents.

Please contact the Curator of Education to make a reservation at 509-773-3733 x25 or email louise@maryhillmuseum.org.  The program, for up to 20 students, includes an application for bus reimbursement for $250, all supplies, boxed lunch, and a free pass for each student (and up to three guests) to return to the museum.

Museum Week

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

Museum Week: Gesture
May 1 – 3, 2018

Line plays a dynamic role in art. It conveys mood, motion, drama and can drive a narrative. Students will tour the collections for a closer look at the many ways artists use line to express their ideas. They will explore movement of the human figure and create a drawing of their own. Guided by mime artist Albert Alter, students will be introduced to the art of mime and mime illusions as a form of storytelling through gesture.

This program is designed for students in 3rd and 4th grade; program takes place from 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Cost: $3.00 per student; schools provide one chaperone per 10 students.
