This web program is designed for teachers in grades K – 6. You’ll find examples of historic landscapes, portraits and decorative arts (identified here as furniture) from The Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens in San Marino, California. You and your students can explore these works together as you wonder why artists create works, which details help us understand art and how we might think like artists today.

Visit the Teacher to Teacher section to link with other teachers using the art collections of The Huntington. Find lessons and student worksheets developed with teachers for this web program by clicking PDF Lessons. For a quick overview of the works selected for ArtWonders, click Gallery of Art. And please consider a tour of The Huntington’s art collections! You’ll find information on scheduling tours by clicking School Tours. Additional art-related Huntington Lesson Plans are linked to the ArtWonders site.

This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts, which believes that a great nation deserves great art.

Teachers and artists collaborated with Huntington educators to create ArtWonders. Special thanks to Caitlin Conley and Vasthi Calvache from the Los Angeles Unified School District; Barbara Wamboldt and Raimer Rojas from the Pasadena Unified School District; and Chelsea Dean, Los Angeles-based artist and faculty member at The Armory Center for the Arts in Pasadena. Katura Reynolds, scientific illustrator, drew the lilies for the interactive page on the Tiffany lamp.
