The COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically changed the way each of us lives our lives. Facing the loss of loved ones, financial uncertainty, and the interruption of events and activities that were once sources of joy, comfort, and community in this new reality, SITE Santa Fe is committed to continuing to provide educational resources for our community.

SITE’s Distance Learning Program offers free set educational tools, including workbooks for elementary, middle, and high school students, as well as art activities and videos.

Workbooks:

With a workbook for each of the artists in Displaced: Contemporary Artists Confront the Global Refugee Crisis, these distance learning resources explore topics such as art, geography, history, social studies, and more as they relate to the artists and artwork in the exhibition.

Please find the Distance Learning workbooks available for download below. More coming soon!
