NEW BRITAIN MUSEUM OF AMERICAN ART

Classroom Resources

Pre-visit PowerPoints

Use these PowerPoint presentations in your classroom to prepare students for their museum visit. Download the presentation that relates to the tour program you’ve scheduled, and find pre- and post-visit tips, sample artworks to share with students, and guiding questions that your docents will reinforce during the tour. School groups unable to visit the Museum in person may also find the PowerPoints to be a worthwhile “virtual” field trip experience.
