New Initiative Connects Children with Eskenazi Museum of Art

(BLOOMINGTON) – Middle Way House, a Bloomington-based agency that serves survivors of domestic violence across the region, is piloting a new art-based club program for preschool and elementary students at the shelter.

The program, called Look Clubs, is based on the concept of a book club. It is offered in a partnership with the Indiana University Eskenazi Museum of Art with support from the Jordan D. Schnitzer Family Foundation and the IU Center for Rural Engagement.

Each month, club members participate in an age-appropriate, unique art activity based on a different piece from the museum’s collection.

The Eskenazi Museum also offers two other levels of the clubs: high school and teacher. Each is open to any interested student or teacher across Indiana.
