K-12 Classroom Activities

Use these classroom activities with your students before or after a guided tour at the museum. These activities and lesson plans relate to the Solidary & Solitary: The Joyner/Giuffrida Collection exhibition and are from our colleagues at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans.

Can’t make it on a tour?

Many of these lessons could also be utilized as stand-alone activities utilizing projected images. Most images can be found in the collection online by searching for the artist and title or by general online searching for the artist and title or email nashered@duke.edu and we will send you a file of images.

Words and Pictures

The Nasher Museum and Durham Public Schools teachers recently collaborated to produce a number of K-2 lessons and downloadable resources that integrate visual arts into the language arts curriculum. These resources, which address Common Core standards and engage 21st Century Skills, are available online for free, thanks in part to a grant by the National Endowment for the Arts.
