Pre-Visit Protectors

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.

Here are some images of their fantastic personal protectors!
