Event Details

Immerse your 3rd and 4th grade students in discovery through hands-on activities, gallery tours, and a musical performance connecting with the day’s theme of COLOR! State and National standards are important guides for this fun, educational experience.

Colors are important tools informing us about the food we eat, the clothes we wear, and even the pets we choose. When we look at a work of art, the first thing we might notice are the colors chosen by the artist…but there is a LOT more to color than meets the eye!

This journey through color reinforces vocabulary like hue, saturation, temperature and value. We will explore the role of color in creating harmony, rhythm, emphasis and mood. While always focusing on visual learning, we will see how art and science work together, and we will use language arts to document our exploration.

After exploring the Maryhill collection, students will enjoy a new way to think about colorful expression through the cello performance of Gideon Freudmann from Young Audiences Arts for Learning.

Cost: $3.00 per student; schools provide one chaperone per 10 students.

Museum Week repeats in the fall. Dates are October 2, 3, 9, 10 & 11, 2019.

Museum Week is Generously Sponsored by the Cross Three Foundation and McCormick Family Fund of the Gorge Community Foundation.
