The Traveling Trunk program brings arts resources on a variety of subject matter directly to your classroom. Each “trunk” is filled with art objects, artifacts, visual materials and hands-on activities to enhance student exploration and learning. The Traveling Trunks also feature reference materials and curriculum guides that help arts teachers, classroom teachers, and homeschooling parents integrate the study of global and regional art history with visual art, social studies and language arts classes. Trunks are geared for use with both elementary and middle school students. Lesson plans and activities tie into Common Core Standards, State and National Standards. Trunks can be rented for a day or up to two months, and include an optional introductory lesson for your students by a Michener Art Museum educator. Teacher In-services can also be provided on these programs.
The rental fee for the each trunk is $75 a month, for up to 2 months. A $100 security deposit is due at time of rental. Deposit will be returned if no items are returned damaged/missing. Optional $75 fee for museum educator in classroom. One-Day Program rental also available for $100, which includes Kit and Educator for one class period, up to 30 students. $25 for each additional class period.
