High School Seminar
Interviews, highlights, and behind-the-scenes clips of the 2014–2015 High School Seminar offer a look inside this annual program, which meets over the course of ten sessions throughout the school year. Upper-level high school art students are introduced to the skills necessary to study art history, as well as to art-making techniques, publication design, and museum careers, using the collections and resources of the Gallery. As part of a community of like-minded students, participants learn how to explore the meaning of works of art through close observation, in-gallery group discussions, research on themes of their choice, and visual journaling. The program culminates with student-led gallery talks and the creation of a publication inspired by the students’ research that incorporates visual art and creative writing.
