GALLERY TOURS

Tours for both students and adults (or school field trips!) will be led by trained gallery educators for a 60–90 minute museum experience. The first half will be spent touring the galleries and the second half will be spent finding a favorite artwork and sketching their own works of art from that image  or sculpture.
