These activities focus on works of art in the Whitney’s collection and special exhibitions. Through discussion, research, art making, and writing activities, we hope to encourage close looking, foster conversation between students, and connect artwork to classroom learning. Learn about our four artist-centered themes.

Make a short video about your hometown

Ask students to use a video app such as Vine to make a short digital video of the story about their hometown from pre-visit activity “Hometown Story.” Divide students into small groups. Ask them to write a script or storyboard for their video. Have them act out the story if it includes people, or do voiceover if not.
