Schedule your students for a fun and academically focused experience at the museum!
We are now taking reservations for both Fall and Spring 2014-15 school tours.
All SEE ART tours are FREE!
Docent guided school tours provide students of all ages – pre-school, elementary, and high school – opportunities to make meaningful connections with art. Students engage in cross-cultural experiences through careful observation, discussions, sketching, writing, art-making, and hands-on activities with objects. School tours run 1.5, 2 or 3 hours, starting at 9, 10 + 10:30am at the Honolulu Museum of Art and/or Spalding House. Click on the tour titles pictured below to learn more.
Several tours include FREE art-making projects as part of the tour in the galleries. For an extensive art lesson following the SEE ART tour, you may book an additional 1.5-hour art-making lesson led by professional artists for $4 per student. Click on the following tour titles pictured below to learn more: Animals in Art, European and American Masterpieces, Math through Art, Asian Masterpieces, and Social Studies through Art.
Thanks to a generous Johnson Ohana Charitable Foundation Grant, there is limited funding to waive the MAKE ART fee for eligible Title 1 Schools. Please indicate your interest on the tour request form.
