Artifact Investigation Workshop!

The opening of the new Education Center this summer brought the creation of a new series of offerings for K-12 School Groups: Tour + Workshops.

Teachers and coordinators can schedule a hands-on workshop to enhance their school group’s guided tour of the Rubin Museum of Art! Workshops are 60-minute, interactive experiences in our new state-of-the-art Education Center, where students  further explore the symbolism, structure, and context of Himalayan art from our exhibitions and hands-on teaching collection.

As we look forward to 2012- we are looking at new opportunities and ways to enrich the programs offered and reach out to new audiences.

Something that I am very excited about is the Artifact Investigation Workshop!

Students will discover the hands-on investigation techniques of professional museum curators, historians and art handlers! By using inquiry and observation, students will learn how to look deeply and uncover the religious, artistic, and cultural meaning of authentic works of art from our exhibitions and hands-on teaching collection.
