Armory Field Trips: A Unique Hands-On Art Experience for K-12

Armory Teaching Artists lead your students through an exhibition where they engage in small group activities, art exercises, and discussions about the exhibition’s themes. Then, your students will create an art project in our studio related to the exhibition. Working in mediums like clay, painting, sculpture, printmaking, or bookmaking, this standards-based experience encourages students to explore the artistic process.

If you have any questions or would like to book a field trip, please call our Field Trip Coordinator, Tricia Garcia, at (626) 792-5101 x 140 or email [email protected].

Diane Christiansen and Jeanne Dunning
Birth Death Breath


Field Trip Dates: February 20 – June 8, 2018


Birth Death Breath is an opera "performed" by inflatable Christmas lawn decorations in various stages of inflation and deflation. Viewers are invited to move among the inflatable characters as they rise from the ground as they seemingly come back to life and begin to sing. Simultaneously humorous and heartfelt, this installation explores timeless questions about the meaning of life and and death.
