Field Trips (Grades K-12)

A Unique Hands-on Art Experience for K-12 Students

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].

Sara Kathryn Arledge (1911-1998) was a prolific painter and an under-recognized innovator of experimental film. Working mostly with watercolor, her abstract, almost psychedelic paintings featured vivid colors and organic shapes that emphasized the eeriness found in mundane things. As a filmmaker, she created exciting, new visual experiences. She is considered a pioneer of ciné-dance (dance made uniquely for film), noted for surreal visuals and low-tech, ingenious use of costumes, masks, and movement.
