Early Art Education Program

The Franklin G. Burroughs-Simeon B. Chapin Art Museum brings art to area pre-schools with our Early Art Education Program. The goal of this program is to expose children, ages 3-4, to the basic elements of art in hopes that art will become a part of their lives as they grow older. Creating art from a young age is proven to help children develop problem solving abilities, build fine motor skills and promote creativity that will help prepare them for their entry into elementary school. Each month, Tracey Roode, Education Coordinator, visits preschools and daycares in Horry and Georgetown counties and, through fun and creative art and literacy activities, introduces children to:

  • Colors
  • Shapes
  • Textures
  • Lines
  • Patterns
  • Space

The Early Art Education Program is made possible by the Frances P. Bunnelle Foundation, The Chapin Foundation and PNC, Grow Up Great.

Field Trip Procedures

WHEN ARRIVING AT THE ART MUSEUM

Plan to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the time you scheduled your visit with our Education Coordinator.

A member from our education staff will greet you outside in the back parking lot of the Art Museum. If there is not someone outside when you arrive, have an adult member of your group check in at the Museum Front Desk before you have the children get off of the bus.

Bus parking is limited but a space in the back parking lot should be available for your group.

Access for students with a disability is available. Please inquire prior to your visit to ensure accommodations are made.

DURING YOUR VISIT

Student behavior, safety and security are the teacher’s or group leader’s responsibility. Groups must be supervised at all times. An art museum is a home for rare and priceless works of art, and our job is to provide visitors with the opportunity to see these works of art. In order to do so, we have to protect them so visitors can see them years from now. Please keep these helpful tips in mind during your trip to the Art Museum.

  • PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH the artwork on display. By not touching the artwork, you help us protect these objects from the natural oils and dirt on our skin that can damage them and leave harmful prints.
  • KEEP YOUR DISTANCE by staying at least an arm’s length away from the works of art. It may be helpful to fold your arms across your chest or put your hands in your pockets.
  • NEVER RUN in the museum. Always walk.
  • NO FOOD OR DRINKS are permitted in the galleries.
  • BE RESPECTFUL OF OTHER MUSEUM VISITORS by talking in quiet tones and silencing your cell phones.
  • ABSOLUTELY NO FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY IS ALLOWED in the Art Museum. The bright flash of light can fade the surface of the artwork. Non-flash photography for private use is permitted in designated areas. Please ask the Front Desk receptionist for the photography policies prior to your tour—photography policies vary with each exhibit.
  • LEAVE THE BULKY STUFF BEHIND. To avoid accidentally bumping into a work of art, leave your backpack or large purse behind during a tour of the Art Museum.
  • CHILDREN UNDER 14 MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY AN ADULT AT ALL TIMES.

 

Pre & Post Field Trip Activities

We recommend that teachers visit the Museum prior to their school field trip day. This will allow teachers to familiarize themselves with the Art Museum and the exhibitions on display. For more information on the exhibits that are on display, visit Exhibitions.

PRE-VISIT ACTIVITIES

LEARN TO LOOK CLOSELY
Encourage your students to observe the things that surround them. Have them discover the lines, shapes and colors that they see around the classroom. Take a walk outside and look for interesting shapes in nature. This activity is about discovering art in places we tend to pass by.

FUEL YOUR IMAGINATION
Show your students four or five different artworks of your choice. Ask them questions. What do you see? What is your favorite part? Does the artwork remind you of anything? As they are looking at the artwork, ask them to imagine the sounds they might hear or the smells they might experience if they were part of this artwork.

POST-VISIT ACTIVITY

After your visit to the Museum, discuss with your students what they learned and their opinions about the art. What pieces did they like or dislike and why?

 

Homeschool Programs

Our unique art education programs are designed for small homeschool co-op groups to develop critical thinking and observational skills through gallery tours and discussions while exploring a variety of art media in the art studio.

Classes are arranged by ages 5-8 or 9-15 years old. Parents are not required to stay with their children participating in a class; however, those who wish to accompany their children must sign up in advance. Due to the available space in the galleries and art studio, programs are limited to 15 participants (including parents/ siblings).

A member of your homeschool co-op can schedule guided tours of the Museum using the same process as school groups. A minimum of eight students is required.

Second Thursday of each month

9-15 year old classes from 1:30-3pm

Horry-Georgetown County High Schools Juried Exhibition

The Art Museum has hosted this juried spring exhibition since 2000. Open to all high school students residing in Horry and Georgetown counties and enrolled in an art curriculum, this exhibition provides area students with an opportunity to submit their works to jurors who are professionals for possible exhibition at the Art Museum. It also fosters several goals: to locally promote high-school student art; to build self esteem among area students; to demonstrate to students one way artists earn money through their art; to develop professionalism in student artists, and to promote the Art Museum within the schools and communities. Awards are given for outstanding work in various categories; the works are judged by a professional artist. Students can discuss with their high school art teachers how to take part in this event.

Homeschooled students must be enrolled in an approved art curriculum course with a local instructor. For more information regarding this curriculum homeschooled students should contact:
