When it comes to learning about the art of a given movement, time or place, there’s nothing quite like visiting one of the world’s best museums to immerse students in the subject matter and forge an emotional connection with the artistic movement they’re studying. Experiencing the rarified atmosphere of a world-class museum in the middle of Europe is a completely life-changing experience.
We believe extending the classroom to the real-world and giving students the opportunity to learn experientially is the absolute best way to empower students to become global citizens. That’s why we’ve enlisted the help of retired world languages teacher and ACIS Academic Travel Advisor Nicolette Miller to create these 6 Lesson Plans based on The New Bloom’s Taxonomy for Art Instruction. She uses an Online Tour of The Musée d’Orsay and Study of Impressionism as the subject matter for 6 different lesson plans.
This guide is for Art teachers who wish to make their instruction and cultural lessons about the subject matter come alive through virtual tourism in the art classroom.
Taking an online virtual tour of the Musée d’Orsay provides a lesson in impressionism and an opportunity for art students to see works of art close up to learn about the role of the movement in art history.
These 6 Lesson Plans engage students using 6 methods:
While experiencing The Musée d’Orsay in person is a life-changing experience, we hope exposing your students to world-class works of art in the impressionism movement via these lesson plans gives your students the inspiration to take the leap into exploring the world’s best museums in the real world.
