PRES 683 PMA Featured Exhibition - Ink + Gold: Art of the Kano - Teacher Resources for The Classroom

College of Critical & Professional Studies

3 credits 42.0 hours
600 level graduate course

Our museum-based courses help teachers in all subject areas learn how to use artifacts to engage students in learning across the curriculum. This course studies the artistry of the esteemed Kano painters, the most enduring and influential school of painting in Japanese history. Established by Kano Masanobu in the 15th century, the lineage created and upheld standards of artistic excellence in Japan for nearly 500 years. The exhibition at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, which presents more than 120 works of art with a focus on large-scale, gold leaf folding screens and ink paintings, hanging scrolls and folding fans, is the first outside Japan (and the first anywhere since 1979) to so fully examine the Kano painters’ legacy. Course content is cross-curricular with hands-on cultural projects applicable to all grade levels and subjects; course includes lectures and demonstrations to provide context and understanding.

Open to graduate students from the Division of Continuing Studies.
This course is not repeatable for credit.
