Museum offers unique opportunity for active, object-based learning
Auburn faculty, want to give your classes an up close and personal interaction with Auburn’s acclaimed art collection?
The Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art provides a wonderful opportunity to engage with art face-to-face. The museum’s “Works on Paper” room is a study area designed to display pieces in a way that allows students to observe much more closely than a traditional museum setting. Faculty interested in using this space for their curriculum can have access to the collection of 3,000-plus objects that span from the 16th to 21st centuries (please give advance notice about which objects you would like to include during your time).
The study room is not just for art classes, but any university course that may benefit from its use as well. If faculty would like to reserve a time for their class, they are encouraged to please fill out the form located here and a museum staff member will process their request shortly after.
Want to know what objects are included in the collection? Visit here to explore all of the pieces. To discuss teaching with objects and schedule classes, contact Chris Molinski, director of education and engagement, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
