Link Your Class to the Museums

Link Your Class to the Museums

Teaching with the Museums does not require art or historical expertise. If you are looking to reinforce skills such as writing or close observation, adding a material culture component to class content, taking a break from the classroom, or all the above, we can help! We are dedicated to creating transformative teaching and learning experiences for students and faculty and can facilitate your class visit or lead discussions with your students in your class, at the Reeves Museum of Ceramics, Watson Galleries, or University Chapel & Galleries. 

OFFERINGS: 

  • Guided Tour  
  • Object Handling Session
  • Writing Assignments: various prompts that build critical thinking skills through observation, interpretation, research (using art as a primary source), creative writing, and exhibition review. 

To plan your visit or for further information, contact Robert Forsberg museums@wlu.edu, the Museums Administrator. 

PLEASE INCLUDE: 

  1. Department and title of course 
  2. Number of students  
  3. Preferred dates and times for the visit 
  4. Copy of syllabus OR answer the following question, what do you want your students to know, experience, or produce by the end of their visit to the Museums?  

Classroom space is available for reservation all week (includes SmartTV) in the Elisabeth S. Gottwald Gallery in the Reeves Museum of Ceramics and the Watson Rotunda.  Special arrangements can be made for classes that meet outside of regular hours.
