Any school or organization is welcomed to bring students to view our galleries either on their own or with an educator to help engage students with the artwork. Our docent’s time with students will change how kids regard museum and gallery visits – with frank talk about why they’re boring sometimes and how to get something out of every piece of art. Teachers can easily replicate the Visual Learning Strategies discussion format for use in the classroom, in any subject matter.
Schools can choose to include a hands-on artmaking activity in our Bridge Studio during their visit as well. Our educator leads a confidence-building art process that compliments the approach of the artist(s) featured in the gallery.
