VISUAL THINKING STRATEGIES
Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS) is an inquiry-based approach to helping students engage with new artwork. Check out the tutorial videos below from Visual Understanding in Education or join us at the Museum for a tour to experience it in action.

  • Using VTS with Kindergarteners
  • Using VTS with Fifth Graders

Give it a try! Record yourself using Visual Thinking Strategies to engage your students with the Delaware Art Museum’s collection and send it to ejarvis@delart.org for a chance to get your video posted.

Professional Development

The Delaware Art Museum Education staff offers professional development opportunities for school districts, parent-teacher organizations, or any group interested in learning more about the Museum’s collections and programming on a sporadic basis. Check back here or join the Educator’s e-bulletin to receive updates when these programs are scheduled.

STUDENT ART DISPLAY PROGRAM
Art Smart student exhibitions are collaborations between the Museum and an area school or district. Students create art inspired by the Museum’s collections to be displayed in the Museum for a public exhibition opening. At this event, students and their families are invited to the Museum free of charge to view student artwork, take in the galleries, and enjoy a night out. Space for Art Smart Exhibitions is limited and generally reserved for partner schools. If you would like to request a student art exhibition please email ejarvis@delart.org.

12×12
Every 5 years the Museum opens one of the main professional galleries for art created by students living and attending school in Delaware. View images of past 12×12 exhibits and join the Educator E-bulletin to be on the mailing list for the next event in 2021.
