Welcome to Global Explorations in Art


Global Explorations in Art is a cross-cultural education program designed for school teachers and children to use in the classroom. The content is art and the wonderful ways we can learn about people and culture through art. In what ways does art tell the lives of people? How is art related with societal, cultural and historical context? How does art help us in connecting people in different cultures?


The program provides full of a rich array of suggestions for cross-cultural learning: webinars with school teachers in East Asian countries, unit plans, PowerPoint Exploration of a work of art from museums in East Asian countries, video clips of classroom activities, activity sheets, writing and discussion activities, and much more.


We hope that teachers and children who are interested in learning cross-culturally and making a global network with schools in East Asian countries participate in Global Explorations in Art and visit to the East Asian Studies Center. We look forward to working with you to create a global community through art together.
