More than a tour
Providing our community and surrounding areas with quality arts education programming is central to our mission.
CUSTOM DESIGNED TOURS
The Art Center provides free scheduled tours for schools, community organizations, and private groups. We are able to customize tours for pre-k students through high school and adults. Art Center staff as well as a core of Volunteer Docents, all trained in Visual Thinking Strategies, are available to spark discussion and practice observation, listening, interpretation, and collaboration with your group.
Art Center staff and docents are eager to make your tour memorable! We offer activities integrated with the current exhibitions on display or customized as an enhancement to core curriculum. Pricing varies $3 - $5 per person, dependent on materials. Chaperones for students create for free.
