Virtually Connect to Joslyn

DISTANCE LEARNING programs offer teachers and students the opportunity to virtually visit the Museum to learn about highlights of the collection. Choose from asynchronous or synchronous opportunities for enrichment activities aligned with Nebraska standards.

2023–2024 School Year Note
Like you, we look forward to being at the new Joslyn. With reopening on the horizon, we are pausing many of our school and teacher programs, including live virtual connections, for now. This breathing room ensures that the Museum’s learning and engagement opportunities will return as fresh and exciting as our new addition. We will see you soon.

Visual Art Enrichment Packages
Designed for all disciplines, Joslyn presents three thematic packages of FREE digital resources, divided by grade levels, and aligned to Nebraska content standards. Each package features short, asynchronous virtual tours and offers deeper explorations, including writing prompts, looking activities, discussion starters, art-making lessons, assessments, and more.


Collaborative Programs
Visual, Music, and Dance Arts Enrichment Resource

Together, Omaha Symphony and Joslyn present Celebrate Creativity, the virtual edition for middle and high school students. Explore Vivaldi’s Winter Concerto, featuring Omaha Symphony Concertmaster Susanna Perry Gilmore. This concert examines the text embedded in Vivaldi's famous work and turns it on its head experimenting with how the music is perceived when musical elements are changed. We further explore Vivaldi's words, inviting our Principal Percussionist Rob O'Brien and dancer Aaron Derell Gregory to interpret the text alongside the violin & continuo.

The concert is paired with a virtual Museum tour led by 2020-2021 Weitz Fellow, Avery Davis. Students will explore Seasons and Styles in this fresh look at Joslyn’s permanent collection. To complete this artful experience, create Winter Impressionistic Landscapes in a chilly art-making project with teaching artist Therese Straseski.
