Sixth Grade Girls Explore the Gibbes Museum of Art
A unique collaboration between Intermediate Program humanities and art classes recently had 6th graders visiting the Gibbes Museum of Art in downtown Charleston. But this was more than just a leisurely tour of the exhibits. The girls were asked to dig deeper and consider art as a snapshot in time—a unique way to look at history. The museum’s late 19th and early 20th Century American Paintings, Sculpture, and Photography exhibition provided the perfect backdrop for them to think about what life and culture was like during those times. This interdisciplinary approach allows the girls to learn history and its implications on the world of art.
