ZuCot Gallery Student Experience
Art is a means to engage all the senses for learning and expression while providing opportunities to develop inherent creative abilities. It also fosters and preserves individual identity, uniqueness, self-esteem, and personal accomplishment.
The ZuCot Gallery Field Trip Experience is designed to help students develop aesthetic perception, personal expression, and artistic skills. As one of the only African American Art Galleries in the state of Georgia and the largest in the Southeast, it is our responsibility to help educate young minds on the importance of preserving, collecting and appreciating culture, while at the same time helping students understand how it affects their everyday lives. Students will engage in higher-level integrative thought processes and real world experiences directly related to their curriculum.
Through the Zucot Gallery Field Trip Experience students will develop a deeper understanding of the analysis of basic literary elements that will help them to identify connections and complexities within narratives and see how individual elements weave together. These skills will be incorporated into the students own narrative and expository writing.
The Gallery Experience includes but is not limited to:
- Guided tour by gallery staff
- Detailed study packet that coincides with the class level
- Artist/ Gallery Owner conversation with students
- Interactive interpretations of work
- Technical Learning Aids
- Pre & Post Student Assessments
