Serving the community through art education programs

During the summer of 2018, I assisted and created projects for the Public and Interpretation programs of the Education department at the Amon Carter Museum of American Art. My immediate goals were to observe, assist, and develop programing focusing on visitor engagement for various audiences. The goals included learning day-to-day operations by attending meetings, observing and assisting on implementing education programs. This led me to being able to create two major projects for each of the two branches of education at the museum.

Art Cart Activities

Assisted in the development for an Art Cart activity at the Amon Carter Museum. The hands-on activities highlighted the Gabriel Dawe Plexus No. 34 installation and Lunar Landscape by Louise Nevelson. Visitors of all ages and abilities became familiar with the artist's creative process, artwork, and biographical information 

Story Time

Created talking points based on slow looking and Visual Thinking Strategies to teach young children about artwork while reading a story. Children learned about Alexander Calder's Untitled mobile sculpture as they related story Slowly, slowly, slowly, said the sloth by Eric Carle to the artwork.
