ARTFUL IMAGINATION VIRTUAL TOUR
Activate student interest and let their imaginations run wild! Discover how color is used by artists to convey a mood or feeling in a work of art. Explore three works of art at The Ringling and learn how artists use a color palette to give their artwork a specific feeling. Then create a color palette of your own to use as a toolbox to create an artwork with a specific mood.
Teachers have two ways to include an Artful Imagination virtual tour in their curriculum.
- Live virtual tour with a museum educator
- Recorded tour and lesson plans
Live Virtual Tour
Live virtual tours are conducted over Zoom or Microsoft Teams. These 30-60 minute virtual tours are led by an experienced museum educator who will meet with teachers ahead of the tour to plan a customized tour that perfectly fits with your visual arts curriculum. Leveraging technology to engage students, this interactive tour will have students actively learning about artist’s color palettes, analyzing art from different periods and cultures, and creating a color palette all their own. Live virtual tours can be customized to focus on any technique in the artist’s toolbox, from the color palette to line to composition, this tour activates the creative artist in all students.
Recorded Video Tour and Lesson Plans
The video option gives teachers the greatest amount of flexibility. These tours are designed with palette creation and reflection/discussion prompts for students, and teachers can easily pause the video to allow students time to reflect and respond. This tour is easily understandable by all elementary students and activities can be adapted to suit individual classroom needs.
