Educators’ Guides

Educator Guides are designed to be used as a resource in the classroom before, during, and after viewing Art21 films.

These guides provide information about selected artists and themes, questions for classroom discussions, and hands-on activities that provide students with a fundamental understanding of creative and critical thinking processes.
