Write Way to Art: American Collection

Write Way to Art: American Collection

In this tour, students will hone their visual observation and critical thinking skills while engaging in a writing activity. Students are encouraged to look closely at a work of art through Visual Thinking Strategies and then take part in either an expository (grades 3-5) or persuasive (grades 6-12) writing activity. Due to the tour’s focus on writing, students will visit only two American galleries during this tour.

This activity is highly encouraged for ELL students and worksheets are available in Spanish and French for foreign language students. Please note that the tours are delivered in English.
