CMCA: Look Inside is available whenever exhibitions are up, typically May to December. We invite teachers with students from 3rd grade through high school to learn about contemporary art in Maine through programs that encourage creative observation, critical thinking skills, an appreciation for the breadth of contemporary art practice, and the joy of being part of the artistic community of Maine.
CMCA: Look Inside can offer a preparatory visit to the classroom, orienting students to an exhibition’s artists and concepts, providing context, while beginning the kind of conversation that encourages open mindedness, curiosity, and multiple points of view.
Teachers should allow 1-1/2 to 2 hours for the visit to CMCA. During that time students will explore the art collaboratively through discussion and activities designed for various age groups. Our goal is give young people skills and experiences that further their understanding and enjoyment of contemporary art.
