Virtually Connect to Joslyn
JOSLYN'S DISTANCE LEARNING program offers teachers and students the opportunity to virtually visit the Museum to learn about highlights of the collection. Joslyn continues to develop program topics as we reach out to more classrooms.

These free programs feature a Joslyn artwork and engaging interaction between your students and Joslyn's Education staff.

Qing Dynasty's Eight-Panel Screen
(Grades 6 to 8; 45 minutes)

Learn about how the Qing Dynasty (1644–1912) formed and their significant contributions to Chinese history and culture. During this connection from the gallery, students will be introduced to the Qing Dynasty’s Eight-Panel Screen in Joslyn’s collection and will explore its different sections - examining traditional Chinese family life, bird and flower rebuses, anatomy of the Chinese dragon, Manchu characters, and orchids’ and grasses’ symbolism. Throughout the lesson, students will be challenged to use critical thinking skills to respond to open questions and creative skills for sketching activities. Together, we will solve the mystery of why this screen was likely created.
