SPRING 2018 PROGRAM

“Print the Walls!”

April 9-May 31, 2018

Art History, Art Appreciation & Creative Skill-Building

Students cover Bend Art Center’s white gallery walls (or your school’s walls!) with layers of ink in this special exhibit program. Using special rollers carved by contemporary printmaker Sukha Worob, students create a “prinstillation” by rolling designs inked with the four process colors (cyan, magenta, yellow and black). After a tour of Sukha’s exhibit, “Zamenhof’s Trials,” students learn about the science of color perception and then experiment with optical color mixing in a specially-designed art activity.

This program is offered as both a Gallery+Studio program (at Bend Art Center) and an Artist-in-Schools program. $8/student  (discounts for Title 1)

WHAT TEACHERS SAY

“The speakers are very knowledgeable about the exhibits, but more importantly, are able to engage children. The artwork the children get to do is phenomenal.  The kids talked about the field trip all year long, and included it in their favorite things of the whole school year.  I highly recommend a visit to A6!”

—Allison, 3rd Grade Teacher

ABOUT OUR SCHOOL PROGRAMS

Gallery+Studio Program

Supported by Art on the River

Each year, Bend Art Center invites Central Oregon schools to participate in our Gallery+Studio Programs. These programs are designed around special exhibits of particular educational value, and explore history, math, or science through art. Students get a close-up look at the exhibit, learn about the art and its connections to other subjects, and then apply their new knowledge in the A6 Print Studio with hands-on printmaking or book arts activities.

Financial assistance is available for Title 1 and rural schools. For more information, email Dawn Boone,  Education Director or call 541.318.6275.

 

Artist-in-Schools Program

Supported by Clabough Foundation

Our Artist-in-Schools program delivers quality arts education directly to schools. We offer mobile versions of our exhibit-based Gallery+Studio programs, and we can also develop custom artist residencies. We strive to develop programs that explore history, math, language arts or science through art.

Financial assistance is available for Title 1 and rural schools. For more information, email Dawn Boone,  Education Director or call 541.318.6275.
