Works of art in the Museum’s collection are rich primary source texts that link with history, literature, and the arts to encourage interdisciplinary learning for all grade levels. School tours are designed to enrich school curricula and reflect the NBMAA’s approach of engaging students in dialogue as they look at selected works of art. Trained docents invite students to explore American art and culture through discussion and gallery activities that utilize observation, problem solving, and critical thinking skills. Tours may be tailored to meet the curricular needs of participating school groups. Reservations are required for all programs and should be made at least four weeks in advance.
