Lessons for Remote Learning

The following inquiry-based lessons include information on how to lead students in discussions about contemporary art, background about the featured artists, online video resources, and artmaking activities. Additionally, the grades K–2 and grades 3–5 lessons include guided play activities. We hope these lessons help inspire ideas about how to use contemporary artists in remote learning.

As always, feel free to contact School and Docent Programs Coordinator Lindsay Kranz at lkranz@albrightknox.org if you have questions, or would like to brainstorm ideas.
