Opportunities for Teachers
Our Artmobile Coordinator provides in-service training at schools to help you incorporate the arts infusion lessons we provide into your curriculum. Teacher Workshops in book arts are offered throughout the year. Eligible for Act 48 hours, these workshops are led by artists featured in the exhibition and take place in the art studios at Bucks County Community College.
Our Teacher Manuals provide all you will need to plan stimulating and effective lessons relating to Artmobile's visit to your school. They provide background information about the exhibition as well as pre-visit and post-visit classroom activities in Language Arts and Art. All of the activities are easily adapted for your students and directly correlate to either the Common Core State Standards for Language Arts or the Pennsylvania Arts and Humanities Standards.
Structures & Stories slide show
Some of the post-visit activities in our manuals require students to refer to what they saw in Artmobile. The Structures & Stories slide show includes images of all of the artworks in the exhibition. It is arranged in alphabetical order, by artist's last name.
Since students never have enough time in Artmobile to view all of the artist videos, they are available here. Videos seen in Artmobile.
Post-visit activities found in our Teacher Manual will help your students synthesize what they have learned in Artmobile with your curriculum. Encourage your students to visit our website to view any of the videos they may have missed during their visit and to see images of the artworks. Then complete an Evaluation Form and mail it to Artmobile, Bucks County Community College, 275 Swamp Road, Newtown, PA 18940. Your feedback is important to us.
Online Student Gallery
Finally, we encourage your students to use the zine format to express their own voice and share their stories with other students. Email PDFs of your students' zines to firstname.lastname@example.org for display in Artmobile and in our Online Student Gallery.
