VIRTUAL WORKSHOP: Curator for a Day

Description

Ever wonder how an exhibition comes together? Learn about museum careers, think critically about works of art, and practice the skills needed to create a virtual exhibition of your own. This virtual experience does not include an Art Kit but will be supported by pre-and post-workshop digital resources. During the workshop, students will need access to a computer or other device either individually or in small groups.

Offered At

The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art

The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art invites all people to explore the art in its care. We welcome and provide free access to everyone to enjoy and contemplate artistic creations from 5,000 years ago to present day. We believe that art has the ability to uplift, surprise, challenge, and transform. It gives expression not only to distant cultures and times, but also to immediate voices and issues, and provides avenues for exploring the world, past and present, and for informing our future. The museum’s broad collection lends itself to a variety of learning experiences for visitors of all ages.

Currently, the Nelson-Atkins is offering virtual programming options in lieu of onsite school tours and workshops. Additional virtual content can be accessed through Nelson-Atkins@Home, where you'll find videos, audio tours, activity pages, and other multimedia features to explore.
