Planning Your Class Visit to the Museum
Guided tours and hands-on art-making activities facilitate inquiry-based discussion of the artwork and aim to foster the development of observation, analytic, communication and critical thinking skills. Students learn to look carefully at works of art and articulate their ideas about them. Programs address New York State Learning Standards in the Visual Arts as well as in ELA and Social Studies.
