What Teachers Can Expect on a CADVC Gallery Visit
Often gallery worksheets or scavenger hunts are included as activities associated with our gallery exhibitions. Gallery worksheets are intended to inspire closer looking and increase time spent reading and thinking critically about the artwork in the gallery. They usually take 20 minutes or less for students to complete.
After the worksheets are completed, a group discussion rounds out the gallery experience. When possible, an artist, curator, or faculty member may lead the discussion. Other gallery activities include group sculpture building challenges. These programs aim to incorporate the “Four C’s” of 21st Century skills, which are embraced by the Maryland State Department of Education’s Fine Arts Division as a Maryland Fine Arts Standard.

Space for eating bag lunches may be arranged or groups may visit the cafeteria to purchase lunches on site.

A limited number of free bus trips to UMBC for scheduled gallery tours for K-12 students are available annually. Bus capacity is limited to 44 individuals. Reservations for these free trips are contingent upon the availability of funds and buses.
