A Growing Nation: 1789-1862

Through early American art, learners will utilize their knowledge of the time period to draw connections and to discuss how the artist or subject relates to the theme of post-Revolutionary war, reform movements, and events leading to the Civil War.  Although designed with high school teachers in mind, this resource can be utilized outside of the classroom to learn more about the Museum’s collection.  We encourage you to adapt this resource to meet your needs and the needs of your students, and to employ the Museum’s online collection database for independent study or extension activities.
