Schools in the Gallery is a FREE education outreach program that connects youth in our community to culturally diverse art exhibits. We provide a professional docent-led tour of our gallery and the current exhibit. During the tour, we will touch on relevant artistic processes and use inquiry-based methods to encourage critical thinking and problem solving. Each tour is tailored to be age and grade appropriate.
