Distance Learning Program

Let us bring the Colby College Museum of Art to you. The Distance Learning Program offers a live, interactive presentation to your classroom via video conferencing. Limited sessions are available Monday–Friday 9am–5pm and last 30–45 minutes. Requests outside these times will be handled on a case-by-case basis. 

Current programs:

Every Picture Tells a Story (K–4th) 

The elements of a good story aren’t confined to the pages of literature. In this session, students will learn to discover stories in the shapes, lines, colors, people, and objects in works of art. 

Maine Experience (4th–8th)

For generations, artists have been drawn to and inspired by Maine. Students will examine a selection of artworks depicting Maine or created by Maine artists. What do these works tell us about the world around us? How has Maine inspired these works?

Repurpose, Interrogate, Reimagine (9th–12th)

In this program, students will look at artworks that repurpose, interrogate, or reimagine one story to tell a new, different, or more complex story. 

Programs for temporary exhibitions can be arranged by request
