SEE ART

This year, we are offering a guided school tour specifically for Title 1 students! If you are a Title 1 school, join us on the first Monday of every month, October 2014-May 2015, for a morning of learning and exploration as we look at the intersections of math, science and art.

Students will discover the elements of art as they learn concepts of math and science.  Each gallery provides the opportunity to look carefully at art and engage in fun activities. This is a unique opportunity for students to participate in experiential learning outside the classroom while meeting fine arts, math and science benchmarks.

Each student will receive a booklet with art, math and science activities to take back to the classroom and a Parent Pass to bring two adults back to the museum!
