We invite you to practice observation, deep thinking, and active learning with Museum Educators as your guide. Participants will engage in discovery through discussion and activities from the Educator’s unique perspective. We employ close-looking exercises as a way to explore themes of the artwork on view. Educators select three to five artworks and lead discussions for learners of all ages, making meaningful connections to art.

Join our Museum Educator, Erin, on this special thematic tour that focuses on six artworks from the current exhibition, Faye HeavyShield: Confluences. Learn how materials used to make art can evoke memories not only for the artist, but also the viewer.

Erin is a Black artist and creative who specializes in illustration, photography, and printmaking. She is currently pursuing an MFA in Illustration and Visual Culture program at Washington University in St. Louis. You can find her work at Instagram.com/erin_the_creator.
