SONOMA, CA.- In response to temporary school closures due to COVID19, Sonoma Valley Museum of Arts has put together ARTS@Home, special lessons available online for families working and learning from home. These series of art lessons, prepared by SVMA arts education staff, can provide children with hours of stimulating and fun learning activities—good for students and good for parents and grandparents!

Each week SVMA is releasing new ARTS@Home learning activities. Lessons 1 and 2 include Drawing a Half-Portrait and Shoebox Faces.

Drawing a Half-Portrait instructs students about symmetry and proportion by cutting a photograph in half and using a pencil and ruler to measure and mark important points around the face. Students connect the dots and watch their complete faces emerge. Drawing a Half-Portrait, Lesson One.

Shoebox Faces opens minds to new ideas, materials and methods. Using humble materials such as paper, string and a square box you can create a floating face that Picasso would be proud of! Link to Shoebox Faces, Lesson Two.

SVMA ARTS@Home also features a Resources Guide, a list of fun art-related resources that families can use while spending time at home.

ARTS@Home is an educational program that can serve students and support teachers as they endeavor to translate the classroom experience to home. Some of the lessons continue to respond to SVMA’s current exhibitions, and some will include broader topics in art history or ways to encourage creativity and relieve stress.

Students can post images of their projects to Instagram with #artsathome or tag @sonomavalleymuseumofart
