Find a Work of Art That... (Week 3)

2015-02-24

Welcome to Week 3, Hangout with Art participants!

Recap: Say It With Art
Last week, we "gave" works of art to friends and family. Some conversations touched on the art historical meaning behind a work of art; others lightened the stress of mouse problems (all told: many animals, good and bad, this week!). And one participant offers a great idea--don't just give a work of art to someone, but ask them to give one to you

This Week: Find a Work of Art That...
This week, we invite you to visit your local museum or gallery and find a work of art that... In this activity, you'll get a prompt that will guide you to a specific piece, which you'll share with a group of family or friends. Don't forget to let us know what piece (and prompt!) you chose on social media by tweeting us @mam_courses or using the #hangoutwithart hashtag.

See you next week!
As always, if you have any questions, just email us at courses@mam.org. We'll see you in the course!

Say It With Art (Week 2)

2015-02-17

We're thrilled you're joining us for the Milwaukee Art Museum's first online course. As part of the course, you'll receive brief weekly emails from us about what's going on this week. Our emails will follow the suggested calendar for the course, but you're welcome to jump ahead or spend extra time on any unit. 

Say It With Art
It's the second week of the course, which means it's time to get started on our second activity, Say It With Art. This is a great activity to try with a friend in person at a museum, or use the Google Art Project online to send an artwork to a loved one who's far away. 

Join the conversation!
We're already seeing active conversations on our Twitter hashtag #hangoutwithart. Here's a great conversation one participant began as part of last week's Object Story activity.

If you don't have Twitter, not to worry--you can still view these conversations online at #hangoutwithart.

See you next week!
If you have any questions, just email us at courses@mam.org. Thanks for participating, and we'll see you in the MOOC!

Welcome!
