Are you looking for a way to integrate arts education into your common core lessons? Our visual arts education poster project has you covered, and if you are a DOE teacher the poster will be coming right to your classroom. These posters use art as a pathway to the Hawai‘i Common Core with easy to follow curriculum connections and discussion prompts on the back.

The poster project began in 2014 and is the result of a collaboration between educators at the Honolulu Museum of Art, the Department of Education, and Hanahau‘oli School. These educators work together to create visual art education posters that are distributed to each DOE classroom on O‘ahu, and available to any other Hawai‘i-based teacher by request.

Six posters featuring Hawai‘i-related art have been released so far. These previous posters focused on a variety of portraits. With this new series we begin a closer look at landscapes with Jules Tavernier’s Volcano at Night.

Check out the Museum’s teacher resources page for more poster-related ideas that span across content areas and make relevant curriculum connections for Hawai‘i educators. You will also find digital copies of past posters if you prefer to project the images for your students.

If your old posters are looking drab or if you need a set, contact Georgia McKenzie at gro.muesumululonohnull@eiznekcmg.
