Active Learning Experiences

Gallery One Active Learning Experiences offer students inquiry-based, hands-on gallery experiences that explore themes across content areas. These 45-60 minute interdisciplinary lessons ask students to take an active approach to their learning using observation skills and technology as a research tool to build meaning. Some experiences include a lab or studio component. All experiences conclude with discussions used as a method of assessment.

Fee: $75 per group of up to 25 students for grades 1–12 and 18 students for Preschool and Kindergarten class size. A maximum of 50 students can be accommodated in each time slot. Payment in full is due by the date of your studio. A limited amount of scholarships are available for schools within the boundaries of the city of Cleveland.
