Art Lessons on Field Trips

Extend your Museum visit and enhance your guided tour with a supplemental art lesson for your students.  Students will create artwork that connects with their tour theme, which they will take home with them after the lesson.  Each lesson includes instruction and materials. For large groups, half will tour the museum first while the other half makes art and the groups will swap afterthe first hour.
