ARTSMART PROGRAM

ArtSmart, the Pence Gallery’s fieldtrip for school groups, engages students in exploring the world through hands-on experiences. Students enjoy learning about the art on display with a docent, and put their ideas to work in their own art project.  Our artists introduce new concepts, materials, and themes in the visual arts. Choose from four projects designed to stimulate your students’ creativity and connect art to different disciplines.   

TO REGISTER: Call 530-758-3370 to register your class.
Program Time: 9:30-11:30 AM.
Fee
:
$5/student, which includes tour, supplies, and instruction.
$7/student for ceramics, which also includes firing offsite.

Reservations should be made at least 2 weeks in advance. Each group needs two chaperones in addition to the teacher. Groups up to 35 can be accommodated, and homeschool groups are welcome.


POINT OF VIEW: ABSTRACT ART
Dec. 3, 4, 7, & 10 / Jan. 4, & 7
9:30 - 11:30 AM
Grades 2-6

Points of View presents new color photography by f/8, a group of eight photographers from Davis, Woodland, and Sacramento. Each photographer captures the world through an abstracted point of view.  This tour introduces students to the world of abstract photography, followed by a session with an artist, in which they use cropping and magnification in a mixed-media drawing to see their subject in a new light.



ART & SCIENCE FUSION
Jan. 25 & 29 / Feb. 4, 5, 11, 18, & 22
9:30 - 11:30 AM
Grades K-6

The Consilience of Art & Science, our collaboration with UC Davis’ Art/Science Fusion program, is a juried exhibit that introduces students to artwork that explores the connection of science with the fine arts.  After a tour, young artists create a print that focuses on the theme of camouflage in nature.  



BLOOM: BLENDING ART WITH FLORA
March 14, 17, & 31 / April 1, 4, 7, 11, & 15
9:30 - 11:30 AM
Grades 1-6

Artists have long been inspired by the beauty and variety of flowers and plant-life in our world. This exhibit shares sculpture, paintings, and drawings by local artists that reflect a deep interest in flowers.  With an artist, students will paint from their observation of real flowers with watercolors.



CERAMICS: TEATIME
May 9, 12, 13, 16, 19, 20, 23, 26, & 27
9:30 - 11:30 AM
Grades 1-6

Springtime is always ceramics time at the Pence, and this year, we are looking at the importance of teaware in various cultures.  Artists such as Marc Lancet and Shimo will have their lovely teapots, cups, and accessories on display. Enjoy making a teapot or cup to be fired, and afterward, students will sample tea brewed just for them.
