Shaping Our America is an exciting new education program designed to engage K-12 students with American culture, history, geography, and peoples via a guided exhibition tour and hands-on art making at the Brigham Young University Museum of Art.
Shaping Our America is a cross-curricular program that incorporates Utah State Core Curriculum Standards in visual arts, social studies, science, and language arts. Museum and classroom activities will implement writing, art making, drama and music to enhance visual arts learning while exploring themes of citizenship, the environment, cross cultural exchange, and equality.
The program complements the museum’s exhibition Shaping America: Selected Works from the Permanent Collection of American Art. Learners from the K-12 community are invited to the museum beginning October 7, 2013 to participate in a guided exhibition tour of Shaping America and a hands-on art activity that address related themes. A Shaping Our America Educator’s Guide is also provided to teachers free-of-charge. Registration for this program is now open.
