TAG Talking Points

Traveling Art Gallery (TAG)

Thank you for volunteering to bring art to the Hartwood classrooms. The following information will help you prepare for your TAG discussions.

Before you volunteer:

  • Schedule a time/date with the homeroom teacher. Presentations should run 20-30 minutes.
  • Review the presentation from the links on this page. The teacher will also have a copy to project onto the smart board.
  • Pick up the art activity materials from the front desk.

TAG Presentation

  1. Introduction & Purpose (1 minute) – Briefly introduce yourself and the TAG program. TAG is a program that helps our students learn about various artists and their styles through short classroom presentations and hands-on activities.
  1. Artist and Style (5 minutes) – Run PowerPoint slideshow through the laptop/smart board and discuss the featured artist, style, medium, genre. Talk to the points on the slides.
  1. “Let’s Talk Art” (5 minutes) – When facilitating an art discussion, allow the students to voice their own impressions about the work. Ask open-ended and exploratory questions on the slide.

Observation – help students describe what they see, including colors, textures, materials.
What colors do you see in the picture? What shapes do you see in the picture? What details do you find? What is the subject matter? Where and when do you think this picture was made?

Interpretation –help students explain what they see.
What is happening in the picture? What was the artist thinking? How does it make you feel? What stands out to you? Why do you think the artist made the work? If the art could talk, what would it say? What would you title this piece?

Judgment – help students express their opinion through evaluation, which should be the final step after observing and interpreting the piece of art.
What do you like about this work? Would you like to own this work? Why?

Hint: There are no wrong answers!

  1. “Let’s Make Art” activity (10 minutes)

The students will then replicate the artist’s style through a hands-on activity. All the materials for the activity will be ready for pick up prior to your presentation. You may need to ask the students to use their markers, colored pencils or crayons.

  1. Clean-up (5 minutes)
