Online Curriculum + Arts Learning & Public Art: In the Classroom

Public art enhances and enlivens public spaces. It can also serve as a great jumping-off point for active arts learning for K – 12 students. Each lesson plan in this series is based on artwork in the WA State Art Collection and includes a PowerPoint presentation of images. Developed by master teaching artist Meredith Essex, each lesson can be modified for different student populations.
The lessons include arts learning objectives and vocabulary aligned with Washington State Standards and can be led by arts specialists, generalist classroom teachers, or teaching artists. Suggested grade levels for each lesson plan are noted, but lessons can be easily modified for age appropriate learning.
