Teachers are welcome to inquire about specific curriculum outcomes related to your student’s current studies.

A studio workshop includes a 15-minute introduction to one of our Gallery exhibitions followed by a 45-minute art activity in the Schurman Family Studio related to the exhibition. The workshop activities offered may include drawing, painting, printmaking, bookmaking, or 3-D construction. Teachers can request an art activity of their choice.

Combined Tour and Workshop– $6.00 per student
This two-hour visit combines the tours described above, with one hour spent in the Gallery and one hour in the studio. If you have more than two classes it is recommended that you combine your Art Gallery visit with our theatre or heritage tours.
