About Education & Humanities

The Education & Humanities Department strives to provide exceptional learning experiences for all age levels, engaging the community through art and ideas. We do this through:

  • Annual Lecture Series
  • Adult classes in both the visual arts and humanities
  • Week-long visual arts camps for grade school students
  • Multiple Family Days where families have an opportunity to visit our gallery space and create an art project associated with the current exhibition’s theme
  • Teen workshops where students learn in-depth skill building techniques in the visual arts
  • District-wide school outreach programs for grades K-12, including:
    • School tours to our exhibitions
    • Visiting artists, authors, and musicians
    • In-class curriculum related visual arts projects
    • In-school and out-of-school theatre experiences

To see our programs in action check out the video below on our Classroom Enrichment Project with Dr. Marcia Grawbow’s AP Statistics Class at Wood River High School. This School Residency took place from October 2013 – February 2014.
