School Tours

The Art Station School Tour programs combine educational exhibition tours and hands-on art activities. Art activities provide a fun, creative extension to the students’ learning experiences, while they develop specific artistic skills. Tours are guaranteed to stimulate dialogue, facilitate questions, and complement the fine arts curriculum, as well as encourage the exploration of art.

Classes and workshops vary in duration and may be one-off events featuring a visiting artist, drop in series, scheduled weekly event, weekend camp or other format.
