Visit the exhibition Our City, Our Collection: Building the Museum’s Lasting Legacy with your students this spring and participate in the newly launched GALLERY + STUDIO program.

Led by specially trained gallery educators, students spend the first hour of their visit touring the galleries, discussing works of art, and recording their responses through sketching and writing. In the second hour of the program, students visit the studio to create a work of art connected to their gallery conversations, using their sketches and notes for inspiration.

Choose from the following themes for your special exhibition tour and art making project. GALLERY + STUDIO is open to students kindergarten through twelfth grade. Each theme and project will be skillfully adapted for your students’ age/grade level.

As with OKCMOA school-aged tours, transportation reimbursement is available upon request for all in-state Oklahoma schools and community groups.

Availability: Wednesdays and Fridays, available starting times are 10 a.m. or 11 a.m.

Ages: Kindergarten through Twelfth Grade

Picturing Place

From the romantics, to the “wild” fauves, to the expressionists, discover the ways in which artists have created mood within landscape paintings and photographs. Be inspired by work from the last 100 years on view in Our City, Our Collection: Building the Museum’s Lasting Legacy.

Students will create mood in their own landscape compositions when they work “en plein air” on easels in front of the museum creating cityscapes of downtown Oklahoma City in large pastel drawings. Pieces will be sprayed with fixative and can be taken home at the end of the visit. [During inclement weather, students will draw from still life in the studio using sketching boards.]

Shaping Self

How do artists address identity in paintings and sculpture? Explore portraits, from George Washington by Charles Wilson Peale (1779), to the contemporary cast-glass sculpture Chado by Karen LaMonte (2010), in the Our City, Our Collection exhibition and discuss how artistic choices help us understand issues of self.

Students will shape their own self-portrait in clay as they create a “ceramic selfie” in the studio. Pieces will be fired at the museum and can be picked up two weeks after your tour.
