Big Picture-In the House! Summer Series
Wednesdays: 10 am-11 am July 29, August 5, 12, 19, 26

Join the Figge Big Picture Outreach Program for this special in-house series designed for all young art enthusiasts!

The Big Picture is normally designed for K-12 school classrooms to connect curriculum with art; teaching “big picture” ideas from a visual perspective. This summer, come to an hour drop-in session at the museum where we will highlight a variety of art connections using Big Picture outreach lessons in the museum studios. Each week the program is offered, participants will learn a new art concept, share in art discussion, explore museum outreach objects and complete a fun activity to reinforce the theme of the day’s lesson.

This is an excellent way for multiple ages to engage in learning while having tons of fun! Suitable for ages 5 through 12—parents are welcome to join in, or explore the museum during each session.

No reservations needed. For more information, contact Laura Dunn, outreach coordinator, at 563.326.7804 x2047 or Brian Allen, outreach educator, at 563.326.7804 x2005.
