Tree to Form
Artmobile’s current exhibition, Tree to Form, explores the use of wood as a medium for creative expression. Organized in collaboration with the Center for Art in Wood, it features more than 30 objects made by artists from around the world as well as interactive displays for all ages.
For Teachers & Parents
To make our educational materials more user-friendly for teachers, and available for parents as well, we have eliminated printed manuals in favor of this interactive website.

Learning in Artmobile
Our professional Artmobile Educator meets each class and engages students in a dialogue about the art geared to their grade level. Students will learn about the nature of wood, the distinctive qualities of different species and where they originate. They will encounter a variety of woodworking techniques – such as turning, carving, burning and painting – and gain an understanding of their expressive qualities.
As with all Artmobile exhibitions, Tree to Form features strong interactive components that reinforce the concepts presented by the Educator. Through them, students have opportunities to experiment with the each principle presented and deepen their understanding.
This year, students will encounter a multisensory experience as our Educator demonstrates wood turning on a lathe in Artmobile. There are a variety of wood objects to pick up and hands-on displays, such as a wooden model of a lathe for students to handle and explore. Through the use of iPads located throughout the exhibit, students will have the option to select among a variety of videos and activities that reinforce and expand on concepts presented in the exhibition.
