Tour guide and children on an Early Childhood Education Tour in the Pre-Columbian and Spanish Colonial art collection.

Creative Explorers

Students, teachers, and chaperones explore the museum’s culturally diverse collection and discover the imaginative ways artists use materials. Storytelling, artmaking, movement, and tactile activities inspire students to experience art in a new way and support relevant connections to the classroom.

We LOVED IT!!!!!!!! The museum guides were stellar to say the least, the content very appropriate, and the timing was perfect. The kids seemed very engaged and I can’t wait to recap their experience with them and see how to expand on it in the classroom.” – L. Wilhelm, Pre-K teacher
