The 2020-2021 school year is unlike any school year we have ever experienced, and the Stark Museum of Art is committed to supporting teachers and SETX school districts’ efforts to keep students and faculty healthy and safe while providing the best educational experience possible.
With this in mind, the Stark Museum of Art developed a new selection of Virtual Field Trips that bring the museum and art studio experience to you. To best support you, Virtual Field Trips are all pre-recorded videos that you can access at any time beginning November 9, 2020. These resources are open and available to all educators; however, educators who register for our programs have the opportunity to reserve Studio Art Kits with materials to provide your students with a hands-on art-making experience. These kits are provided FREE through the generous support of the Nelda C. & H.J. Lutcher Stark Foundation. Kits are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Kits will be delivered to schools in Orange County and are available for pick-up to schools in Region 5, Texas and Calcasieu Parish, LA.
In addition to our virtual field trip program, the Stark Museum of Art will continue to offer its regular slate of student art exhibitions throughout the year. Be sure to review this catalogue for information about all of the student art exhibition opportunities.
We look forward to serving you this year!
