The images above were sent in by Sarah, a teaching artist with the Guggenheim Museum‘s Learning Through Art (LTA) program. According to their website, “LTA places professional teaching artists in public elementary schools in New York, where they collaborate with teachers to develop art projects that teach students art skills and techniques while exploring themes related to the school curriculum.” The program has been using MFTA materials since 1983! Check out the accomplishments of the program’s participants and educators in the exhibition, A Year With Children 2011, on view at the Guggenheim Museum through June 15.
