Perspectives is a joint program of the South Bend Museum of Art in collaboration with the Snite Museum of Art which provides 5th grade students with an opportunity to learn about the world around them through the eyes of artists. Gallery experiences are enhanced at both facilities through a number of hands-on projects. At the Snite, students participate in a creative writing activity which uses works of art as writing prompts. At the South Bend Museum of Art, students explore how contemporary American visual artists tell stories before heading to the studios to create a one-of-a-kind work of their own. Perspectives visits occur on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, October through December. Students from Mishawaka schools and area Catholic schools participate in this interactive museum program.
