K-12 Virtual Visits include an engaging discussion with digital images of artwork from the Nasher Museum of Art collection. Visits encourage critical thinking, careful looking, and thought provoking discussions.

A Nasher staff member will lead the conversation through the Zoom meeting platform. Once a meeting is scheduled, Nasher staff will send the organizer a link to the meeting for the scheduled date and time. Please share this link with your students.

Conversations last approximately 30-45 minutes. Groups are limited to 30 students at a time. If you expect more than 30 students to participate, please request multiple time slots.

Museum Mysteries

Recommended for grades K-8
Available October 4 – December 10, 2021
 
Students will don their detective caps as they look for clues, make observations, draw conclusions and try to answer:  Who? What? When? Where? Why? How? And What happens next? We will explore artworks spanning nearly 500 years – from the mid-16th Century to just a few years ago – as we collectively solve Museum Mysteries!

All Art is Contemporary

Recommended for grades 6-12
Available October 4 – December 10, 2021 

All art is, or was, made by living artists. Students will view artwork from a span of 2,000+ years and discuss ways in which artists of the past and present used their contemporary world to influence their artwork. From the Roman Empire, to The Great Depression, to today’s TikTok trends – All Art is Contemporary!
