LESSON PLANS

DISCOVER YOURSELF

The Leslie-Lohman Museum of Art's digital curricula includes this set of lesson plans exploring works from our permanent collection. Artworks are explored through the interrelated themes of identity, activism, and LGBTQ+ history. These materials can be used by teachers or GSA coordinators for grade levels K-12 as a supplement to classroom curricula, or to provide background for a museum visit. (Families can also use them for at-home learning!)

Art and Identity

Art and Identity is designed as an introduction to the ways that LGBTQ+ art is tied in with, and often even inspires, the community’s activism. Additionally, participants are introduced to Leslie-Lohman Museum of Art and how our history is intertwined with the history of LGBTQ+ communities in NYC.

Art and History

Art and History is designed as an introduction to the museum’s collection and how collecting and archiving play an important role in preserving LGBTQ+ history

Art and Activism

Art and Activism is designed as an introduction to the ways that LGBTQ+ art is tied in with, and often even inspires, the community’s activism. Additionally, participants are introduced to Leslie-Lohman Museum of Art and how our history is intertwined with the history of LGBTQ+ communities in NYC.
