Lesson Plans

Each exhibition is accompanied by several lesson plans to help educators engage students in meaningful artmaking around social justice topics. We hope you can utilize these plans to bring important conversations and various art processes to your classroom.

How to book a group tour

A one hour tour includes a conversation around each art exhibit, short video, and an activist button making activity. We are a small, one room museum inside the KIPP Chicago regional office so we can only accommodate groups of 25 people or fewer. Students in grades K-12 welcome! Email jvillalpando@kippchicago.org to schedule a tour.

Remote instruction for the 20-21 school year will begin on Monday, August 24!
