Explore multiculturalism through the examination of five world cultures using art images and projects as a tool to engage students.

Develop hands-on art projects and applicable studio activities that can be used within social science, history, art and other subject areas. Studios consider gesture, costume, textiles and imagery as the basis for drawing and collage exercises easily adapted for a range of students. Class includes a visit to the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Lessons and activities are open to beginners seeking artistic projects for their classrooms, as well as those with previous art experience.
