Virtual Visits for K-12 Groups 

After a successful pilot phase with select K-12 schools and community groups, the ICA will be publicly launching Virtual Visit offerings for K-12 groups in October 2020. These live, real-time online “visits” are led by an ICA educator over Zoom or the group’s preferred videoconferencing platform. During each 40-minute Virtual Visit, students will engage in slow looking at artworks from the ICA’s collection, allowing them to be present in the moment, think critically, and hone their visual literacy. Thematic topics including “Artist as Storyteller” and “Methods and Materials” explore how contemporary artists question and make sense of the world. Virtual Visits are highly interactive, with opportunities for students to consider multiple perspectives through collaborative meaning-making using verbal and non-verbal responses. Students will reflect on their own place in the world with art-making, discussion, or other multimodal prompts. More information about scheduling a Virtual Visit for your group will be available soon. Have a question or want to be contacted when more information about scheduling a Virtual Visit is available?
