YOUNG AT ART (Pre-K to Grade 12)
Pre-K and K-12 School Tours are designed to be stimulating, exciting, and age-appropriate learning experiences. Young students identify colors, lines, shapes, and patterns throughout the varied art in di Rosa’s extensive collection and learn to investigate art and nature through observation and discussion-based activities. Older students may discuss how art can reflect social and political issues through drawing, painting, sculpture, and photography. Tours can also include an art activity, such as sketching in the galleries.
College Tours are welcome for a special group rate of $5 per student. Students are guided through the galleries and grounds to see the highlights of the di Rosa collection including drawing, painting, photography, new media, and sculpture.
