Museum Week: Shadowplay!
Spring: May 5, 6 & 7, 2020 | 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Immerse your 3rd and 4th grade students in discovery through hands-on activities, gallery tours, and a performance connecting with the day’s theme of VALUE. State and National standards are important guides for this fun, educational experience.
Spend time in the museum galleries learning how artists use value to create the illusion of light and dark, texture and contrast in their work. Afterwards students will explore new ways to think about the same concepts through a performance of the Oregon Shadow Theatre.
This program is designed for students in 3rd and 4th grade, with schools providing one chaperone per 10 students; 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.

High School Museum Day: Reading Rodin
This unique experience gives high school art students an opportunity build their portfolios and learn more about careers in the arts. Participants take a guided tour of the museum’s masterworks with an eye toward artist intent and technique, and enjoy a figure drawing session in the Rodin Gallery guided by a professional artist. This is a fantastic opportunity for serious art students to further develop their portfolios for college applications. Students also will receive a coupon for a free return visit to Maryhill (for up to four people), and are encouraged to use it to continue their sketching experience independently.
To arrange, please contact the Curator of Education to make a reservation at 509-773-3733 x25 or email education@maryhillmuseum.
