Each week will feature a new lesson and hands-on activity based around Figge exhibitions and collections.

Register for as many or as little sessions as you choose or view the lessons at your leisure once the video link is posted.

  • Week 4 (July 29, 2020) - View Video Lesson Here In this lesson, why are we so fascinated with places we cannot reach? Historically, the West was thought to be a mysterious and fantastically place full of grand adventures and new opportunities. Join us as we explore our never-ending interest in the West through our discussion of the brand new Magnetic West exhibition, later creating collages based on our own mysterious places. 

  • Week 5 (August 5, 2020) - View Video Lesson Here In this lesson you, have you ever wondered what we keep in our outreach collection? In our last session of the summer, we will bring out several of our outreach objects, including some pieces students may have never seen before. We will draw inspiration from the collection’s oldest member, the African masks, and make our own masks in their honor.
