GUIDED EXHIBITION TOURS and WORKSHOPS
Students investigate the world around them through the lens of artistic creativity. Each group visit is customized to meet the needs of the school. Activities are designed to deepen the experience of art, foster creativity, and nurture skills to engage with art independently. Learning experiences correlate with local and national educational standards and support twenty-first-century learning goals. Arts Center education staff can help plan a program (from one hour to a whole day in length) that connects to your classroom curriculum.
