The Kinder Foundation Education Center Gallery presents exhibitions that showcase art created by students who have learned about and been inspired by art at the Museum.
The gallery is located in the KFEC, on the lower level of the Caroline Wiess Law Building.
Art at the Heart of Learning
On view January 17–June 28, 2015
The great 20th-century American Realist painter Edward Hopper once declared, “If I could say it in words, there would be no reason to paint.”
Jacqueline Chaltain, an art specialist at the Presbyterian School, challenged her 3rd- and 4th-grade students to choose one work of art in the exhibition Selections from the Museum’s Collection: Modern and Contemporary Art to articulate what they felt the artist was trying to say, and how the artist said it, through composition, scale, brushwork, or other means.
The students visited the Museum three times during the fall 2014 semester to view the exhibition, make sketches, and take photographs, which they used as references to create their own works of art back in the classroom.
