For teachers of grades 2-12

During the teacher preview tour, teachers will explore the galleries with a museum educator, receive materials to help plan tours, and have the opportunity to ask questions to plan student visits. 

In the Telling Stories in Art tour, students compare how art is used to express ideas, stories, events, and universal themes across cultures and time periods. Students explore narrative elements, including setting, character, and plot, to analyze and discuss theme, form, and style of works of art. Students will also have an opportunity to use works of art to create their own personal stories.
