Zoom & Tech Set-Up

At this time, all of our virtual tours will take place via Zoom. Teachers must attend the tour session with their students.

Trial Run / Set-Up

To offset possible connectivity and/or compatibility issues, we ask that teachers briefly meet with an Atlanta Contemporary staff member one week before their scheduled tour. This pre-session will include an introduction between the primary teacher and an Atlanta Contemporary staff member via Zoom. The goal is to ensure that links properly work, that sound and video quality are acceptable and that everyone feels comfortable navigating through Zoom. This should take about 15 minutes.

Don’t worry, an Atlanta Contemporary staff member will reach out to you to set the date and time. We know that technology is unpredictable, and this meeting should reduce the likelihood of any issues. If a teacher declines or does not attend the pre-session, Atlanta Contemporary will not refund nor assume responsibility.

A Slow Look
Grades (K – 12) – Visual Art, ELA

'Slow looking', a Harvard-studied approach asserts that in order to understand art, we have to take our time. Students will use the power of observation to notice clues that help their understanding of what they are looking at. Questions like: What do you see? What do you think? What do you wonder? help us explore elements and principles present in contemporary art. When we take time and look slowly, we are allowing for discoveries and form personal connections with the work.

Living Traditions
Grades (2 – 12) – Visual Art, Social Studies, ELA

Ever wonder about the cultural traditions of other countries? States? Communities? This tour centers the personal traditions of artists – their story, their history, their upbringing – and how they use art to archive and share their cultural history through the work. Often through installation and site-specific exhibitions, this interactive experience uplifts personal stories of artists through an arts-focused history lesson.

Art as A Solution
Grades (5 – 12) – Visual Art, Social Studies
