Collaborative Programs
Visual, Music, and Dance Arts Enrichment Resource

Together, Omaha Symphony and Joslyn present Celebrate Creativity, the virtual edition, available February 23, 2021, for middle and high school students. Stay warm this winter exploring 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.

Asynchronous Programs
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. Teachers retain control of what they assign students—whether in-person or in a remote learning environment—and have the flexibility to use the digital materials as needed for their curriculum. Choose from Art Appreciation: Create, Present, Respond, Connect, Native Americans: 1800s to Today, and Leadership: Making a Difference!
