This ArtsConnectEd Set was designed for teachers and students in grades 4-6 who plan to visit the The Living Years exhibit at the Walker Art Center. It can be used to prep visitors for the tour theme of "Time," with a look at the different ways contemporary artists experiment with the concept of time.
The ArtsConnectEd Set contains a sampler of works from the exhibition as well as outside resources. It can be considered a sneak preview of the kinds of ideas and artworks students will explore during their visit to the Walker Art Center.
It also includes questions adapted from a technique called Critical Response, which can encourage critical thinking, both during the preview and during the tour itself.
Please note there is one YouTube link in the slide set; if a school blocks access, students could potentially watch the clip at home (or teachers could bypass the slide, altogether.)
