Yonkers Middle School, New York
Grades 7-8, including general and special education classes
At the end of 2020, the education team was visited by Middle School teacher Beth Kroupa to view our Julie Mehretu exhibition: about the space of half an hour. Inspired by elements of Mehretu’s work, Beth put together curriculum for her middle schoolers which would introduce them to Julie’s work, her politicized landscapes, and the concept of using layers in art. The class was conducted remotely and the students were therefore allowed to use any materials they had on hand at home.
