Two-Part Art


    Two-Part Art is a visit to the Museum and studio art lesson for your classroom! When you sign up for a Two-Part Art program, you may choose ‘in-person’ or ‘live virtual.’ An in-person classroom visit will include a guided tour of our galleries, followed by a standards-based art lesson inspired by current exhibitions. Similarly, our ‘live virtual’ option will include a virtual walkthrough of our Museum facilitated by our gallery teachers, followed by a standards-based art lesson inspired by current exhibitions. All art supplies are provided, the only difference between in-person or live virtual is whether your classroom comes to us, or we meet on a live virtual platform! 

    The program includes: Museum tour, studio art lesson, and art supplies needed. 

    Program fee: $250 for 10–35 participants including chaperones, $500 for 36–70 participants including chaperones. The cost for groups with fewer than 10 participants is $120 (fees are based on the total number of participants including chaperones).
