di Rosa offers in-person and student visits that provide conversational, active learning with art. Our guided visits invite school-age students to make connections between art, curriculum, social and cultural contexts, and their lives. We use open-ended questioning with compelling works of art to students to construct interpretations, use critical thinking and evidential reasoning, and develop social and emotional skills. Sign up to experience di Rosa through a new lens!
