A.R.T.S is an acronym for Academic Resources for Teachers and Students. The A.R.T.S. program is developed by our staff to provide cross curriculum lessons for Kindergarten through Twelfth grades. The Kimball provides this as a way to integrate art into lessons that are based on core subjects such as Math, Science, Reading, Writing, History, Geography and Language Arts. All lesson plans that are created are based on the Utah State Core Curriculum Requirements and correlate to our Main Gallery exhibits.
Each A.R.T.S tour for the Park City Collects II exhibit will include a free 45 minute guided tour as well as a 45 minute art project that can be completed at the Kimball Art Center or in schools. In addition supplemental K – 12 lesson plans integrating the arts with core subjects are available online.
In order to reinforce what the students learn about the works on display, students will participate in a hands-on art project in which they will be asked to curate and create their own art gallery. Students will be using small images from past exhibits at the Kimball Art Center and create a 3D diorama that is uniquely to their own taste and style. Projects will go home with students.
The Kimball Art Center is able to provide the free of charge, A.R.T.S. School Tour Program for the Park City Collects II exhibition to public, private, charter, home schools plus youth organizations thanks to underwriting by Vail Resorts, Canyons, Rocky Mountain Power, The Burton Foundation, and Edward Life Sciences, with exhibition support from KSL 5 TV, Susan & Chris Lockwood, Carmen & Rick Rogers, Zions Bank, and additional support from the George S. & Dolores Dore Eccles Foundation, Summit County RAP Tax, and the Utah Division of Arts & Museums.
