SCHOOLS & SENIORS IN THE GALLERY

The “Schools in the Gallery” program is a comprehensive interdisciplinary arts education curriculum designed to enrich arts education for students throughout Montana. Public, private, and homeschool groups of all ages are welcome.

Students enjoy an exhibit tour led by professional docents through the Jessie Wilber Gallery. Docents use inquiry-based methods to teach critical thinking and visual literacy skills. Teachers may elect to add a hands-on art enrichment activity where students create original artwork that echoes the exhibit’s techniques, materials, and themes.
