During school tours, students learn about art in the current exhibit, how to look at art, and how to read exhibit labeling. Tours are focused on an art theme that is well demonstrated in a few pieces of art in the exhibit. We suggest 30 minutes for a guided tour. Guided tours for school groups are $2 per student. Maximum group size is 50 students. $20 minimum tour fee. Scholarships are available for school groups.
GUIDED TOUR WITH A LESSON
In addition to a guided tour of the museum, students can take part in a post-tour art lesson in our classroom. The art lesson reinforces the theme explored in the tour and gives students a hands-on opportunity to use this theme in their own work. The guided tour with art activity is approximately 90 minutes.
Guided tours with lessons are $3 per student. Maximum group size is 50 students. $45 minimum tour fee. Scholarships are available for school groups.
