DEDICATION
To fourth and fifth grade students everywhere:
the best and brightest hope for our future. 
And to their teachers who recognize the truth of the
Chinese proverb which tells us . . .
I hear and I forget
I see and I remember
I do and I understand. 

OVERVIEW

The process of learning how to find meaning in art fosters intellectual development and critical thinking skills.

Welcome to EYE TO I, an experience in art appreciation designed to help young writers increase their awareness of the aesthetic world around them.  With the eye of an artist, students will learn how to think about and describe characters and settings as they study landscapes, portraits, narratives, still lifes, and sculpture.

EYE TO I is a 3-part program designed to help students learn how to analyze, interpret, and appreciate art works and, in so doing, use this visual awareness to broaden their expressive selves, language skills, and writing ability. 

Part 1 consists of pre-visit activities designed to prepare a common knowledge base for all participants.  Many children have not been to an art museum and need to be able to anticipate their first visit with a sense of confidence that they will be able to understand and participate fully in the tour and discussion. 

 

Part 2, the docent-led tour of the Boca Raton Museum of Art (BRMA), involves you and your students in an investigation of five to eight works of art in order to discover what they represent and how the artists have communicated their meanings.  The tour will include works in the Museum's Mayers Collection of 19th and 20th century American and European art by some of the great masters of that period.  Your group will engage in minds-on/hands-on discussion, Visual Thinking Strategies, and vocabulary-building activities such as Polar Pairs in which students will, in small teams, make decisions about the best words to use in describing the character of the artwork being discussed.  The tour has been planned so teachers and students can study works of art to explore possible interpretations, using the "colors" of their own experiences.  Tours last from 45 minutes to an hour. 

 

Part 3, the post-visit follow-up, suggests activities that reinforce the concepts or big ideas learned during the tour.  Students will complete the projects begun during their pre-visit activities.  Students will also be asked to write to the BRMA with their impressions and teachers will be asked to complete a one-page evaluation of the EYE TO I program.

What is a CVV Code?

CVV2 is a security measure for credit cards. Since a CVV2 number is listed on your credit card, but is not stored anywhere, the only way to know the correct CVV2 number for your credit card is to physically have possession of the card itself. All VISA, Discover, MasterCard and American Express cards made in America in the past 5 years or so have a CVV2 number. However Diners Club does not use a security code.

How to find your CVV2 number:
On a VISA, Discover or MasterCard, please turn your card over and look in the signature strip. You will find (either the entire 16-digit string of your card number, OR just the last 4 digits), followed by a space, followed by a 3-digit number. That 3-digit number is your CVV2 number.(See below)

VISA, Discover & MasterCard


On American Express Cards, the CVV2 number is a 4-digit number that appears above the end of your card number. (See below)
