New School Tour for Feast of Flowers Exhibit

Dec

In correspondence with Jacksonville artist Jim Draper’s newest series “Pascua Florida: Feast of Flowers” which celebrates the 500th anniversary of the first European engagement with Florida, the Education Department at the Cummer is introducing a new school tour for Spring 2013. Complementing an interactive gallery visit, each guided tour will include activities in the Museum’s beautiful historic Gardens. Through Jim’s art, students will explore different Florida ecosystems and will have an opportunity to create a studio art project of their own. The Cummer has partnered with St. Johns RiverKeeper to develop an integrated curriculum that supports state standards in the visual arts, math, and science.  Tours will be available from January 8 through April 5.
