Teachers can prepare their students for their trip to the museum by scheduling a pre-visit lesson after booking a tour. This free program for grades K-12 brings the wonder of Himalayan art and culture right to the classroom!
Pre-Visits are 45-minute in-class interactive presentation led by a museum educator uses images from the museum’s collection to foster an inquiry-based discussion and a hands-on activity. We end each experience with a personal drawing project.
In the last month, I have traveled to a number of public schools in the Bronx, Manhattan, and Brooklyn to lead the Powerful Protection Pre-Visit:
Powerful Protection (Recommended for grades 3-12)
Protection is a recurrent theme in Himalayan art. Students will examine and decode images of protection and make connections between the images and their own lives.
