I took my seventh graders to the Corcoran Museum of Art in Washington D.C. yesterday for a field trip as part of the Corcoran's ArtReach program. They've been studying artworks that explore issues of identity and had a chance to create personal symbols and make their own prints and collographs. They will be exhibiting their art at the Corcoran Museum in May along with other middle schoolers in Washington, D.C.

Exploring Identity with ArtReach

Seventh grade students at Brookland explore issues of identity during art lessons with Corcoran Museum of Arts' ArtReach program. Kristen, a Corcoran education student co-teaches with me for 6 art sessions at the school. In this project students make collographs using cloth, ribbon, bubble wrap and other found objects to make a statement about their identity. The finished prints will be exhibited in May at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C..
