Coming to Life

Experiencing Art Firsthand

By engaging with original works of art, museum visitors can experience diverse human experiences. Art education at the Susquehanna Art Museum takes many forms and involves students of all ages! No experience in the arts compares with viewing the primary source – original works of art. Textures and materials come to life when students see works of art firsthand. Original works of art connect students (and visitors) to the historical and cultural context in which these artworks are made; provide a forum to understand art as a way of communicating and reflecting important ideas and serve as inspiration for self-reflection.
