Students take part in Guggenheim’s Learning Through Art program

A Year with Children 2010: Selected Works from Learning Through Art, an annual exhibition showcasing artwork by elementary school students in the second-through sixth-grades will be on display at Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.

The exhibition presents selections of artwork by students from 10 public schools throughout New York City, who participated in the Guggenheim’s Learning Through Art (LTA), a pioneering arts education program now completing its 39th year. Approximately 120 colorful and imaginative works will be on display including drawings, photographs, clay and found object sculptures, paintings, assemblage pieces, and fabric collages.

Learning Through Art (LTA) places professional teaching artists into New York City public elementary schools, where they collaborate with classroom teachers to develop art projects that allow students to learn art skills and techniques and explore ideas and themes related to school curriculum. The program encourages curiosity, critical thinking, and ongoing collaborative investigation. Additionally, LTA immerses students in the artistic process, encouraging them to view themselves as artists. Students’ investigations are also inspired by the exhibitions they visit at the Guggenheim during the school year. When viewing art, students participate in inquiry-based discussions encouraging careful observation and interpretation.

The exhibition will be on display May 14 through June 20, 2010, Wednesdays 10am-5:45pm, Fridays 10am-5:45pm, and Saturdays 10am-7:45pm. For more information, visit www.guggenheim.org
