Classroom Visit Program

If you and your students are unable to visit the Nasher for a free tour, a Nasher staff member can come to you. Classroom visits include an engaging discussion with digital images from current and past exhibitions, and hands-on objects. Visits encourage critical thinking, careful looking, and thought provoking discussions.

Classroom visits are available on Mondays only and last 30-45 minutes. Nasher staff can provide a digital projector and laptop or use classroom equipment to present the PowerPoint slides. Classrooms must have a screen or blank wall for projection.

Groups must be limited to 30 students at a time.

A Picture Is Worth 1,000 Words

Recommended for grades K-5
Explore the relationship between pictures and storytelling. This visit reinforces the English Language Arts Common Core standards of “Key Ideas and Details” and “Integration of Knowledge and Ideas.”

Art of Identity

Recommended for grades 6-12
Consider issues of identity in portraiture as students explore how they present themselves and how they draw conclusions about others. Using current exhibitions, students will identify and interpret visual details from a wide variety of images.
