Brief Description

This program mainly serves Kindergarten to 12th grade; however, adult tours are available. There are two types of guided tours: The first, is an hour long tour which is an interactive discussion promoting critical thinking skills. This is held entirely in the galleries. The second is an Interpretive Art Program (IAP). It is a 1 to 2 hour interactive discussion within the gallery. The second half of the program tour is an art making activity based on a theme from the exhibition.
