Virtual Three-Part Art 2020-21

This free, multi-part arts educational program is designed to provide arts education experiences for K-12 grade levels, themed to the current exhibit in the William D. Cannon Art Gallery. For the 2020-21 school year, Three-Part Art will be a virtual experience that hosts a scheduled live virtual gallery tour with a Question and Answer session and an option to utilize a pre-recorded gallery tour, with pre-recorded arts instruction for either option.

How Do Teachers Participate and Register?

Reserve a live virtual gallery tour and your class art kits online in the blue Teacher Portal tab at: carlsbadconnect.org

  • Class registration is on a first come, first serve basis.
  • Three-Part Art live virtual gallery tours will offer two sessions a day, weekly; on select Mondays and Wednesdays.
  • Three-Part Art will be hosted virtually on Google Meets. Teachers will be expected to host and invite Arts Instructors at the registered time.

What Are The Three Parts?


An online pre-tour lesson is available prior to the live virtual gallery tour to prepare students for their virtual or pre-recorded tour of the gallery.


Teachers schedule a live virtual gallery tour (or can utilize a provided pre-recorded gallery tour on the Cultural Arts website) where their class will take a tour via Google Meets with an Arts Instructor and participate in live chat afterwards as part of a Question and Answer session. All students will also be provided with an Art Kit in order to participate in the art projects for all three lessons (Pre-Tour, Main and Post-Tour Lessons), relating to the current exhibit, at home or in the classroom.


Teachers are provided with a post-tour lesson and discussion topics that can be used to engage with their students after the live virtual gallery tour or after viewing the pre-recorded gallery video.

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the passing of the 19th Amendment granting women the right to vote. In celebration of this anniversary, the William D. Cannon Art Gallery presents the work of four local women artists.  

Art holds an important place in the history of women’s fight for the vote. Art helped to inspire and unify the suffragists who were dedicated to expanding American democracy. Today, art continues to inspire and stir others. “Four Visions: A Celebration of the Year of the Woman” showcases four mutigenerational women artists who each bring their own inspiration and vision to their work. The four artists in this anniversary exhibition challenge our assumptions of media by working with traditional as well as unexpected materials. Many of the pieces are solid and structural while others are ethereal and otherworldly. Artists are Anne Mudge (sculpture), Kline Swonger (mixed-media and sculpture), Bianca Juarez (ceramics) and Marisol Rend὚n (drawing).
