This ArtsConnectEd Set was designed for teachers and middle school students (grades 7-8) 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 "Identity," with a look at the varied ways in which identity is communicated through art.
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 see during their visit to the Walker Art Center.
It also includes questions adapted from a technique called Critical Response Protocol, which can encourage critical thinking, both during the preview and during the tour itself.
