Join us for a thematic virtual museum tour, right from your home or hybrid classroom. In this participatory tour, students will be guided to make observations while looking closely at artwork on view in the galleries. Tours use 3D imagery of the galleries, are live, interactive, and led by the Museum's knowledgeable docents through the Zoom platform. All virtual tours feature artists of diverse backgrounds.
An art-making workshop led by our talented teaching artists will follow the tour. Creativity Kits filled with specialized supplies can be mailed to your school in advance. Please note that students will need access to basic supplies such as pencils, scissors, glue, markers, and crayons.
