Get SmART About ART, 2-7

Admission is free at the Smart Museum (University of Chicago). Students can meet an artist, visit a studio, and see some great art. It shows students different ways to look at art and how to tell a story using art. The art includes photography, sculpture, painting, and other genres. Although some smARTkids activities are structured, most promote open-ended exploration of art. Visit the site with your students to learn the language of art, understand that artworks invite multiple interpretations, and see how art is created for a wide variety of personal and social purposes.
