The AD&A Museum’s Education & Outreach Program (EOP) partners with Isla Vista Youth Projects (IVYP) to provide after-school programs on global art history and craft, as a means to promote early interests in art, creativity, and global citizenship. The program is taught by undergraduate art history students through the mentorship and support of the Education & Outreach Program Coordinator.
We are pleased to share some lesson plans created by the 2020–21 Museum Interns with support and guidance from EOP Coordinator Rachel Winter. The lessons range in themes from recycled art and origami to surrealism and women artists. Each lesson includes activities that can be completed with simple craft materials.
