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.
