Distance learning allows us to bring the galleries into the classroom in an era when travel budgets and available time are very tight. Two way communications between the presenter and the classroom provide a front row seat to all demonstrations. We will be expanding our distance learning programs to other art museums around the country. The state of the art video conferencing equipment was funded through the Centennial Campaign.
Our staff is knowledgeable and fluent in many areas. Sessions are free and our distance learning equipment is compatible with Polycom and Tandberg units. We also have the capabilities to Skype and use Windows Live to connect with your classroom from our galleries.
We can also offer art lessons using the equipment. After a tour of our galleries and select art works, a guided art activity can be taught to your students! Your responsibilities would be to gather the required materials and distribute them, while we teach the lesson from our end. Follow this link
to see what lessons we can teach from the Museum.
