Guided tours at the Tweed Museum of Art offer preK-12 school teachers additional ways to inspire students, make curricular connections, and expand learning opportunities. One-hour programs help students develop visual literacy and critical thinking skills through inquiry-based, students centered discussions. Students gain an understanding of visual art as a reflection of the cultures, histories, and aspirations of the people of our region.
