Docent-led or self-guided tours arranged for groups of 10 or more, three weeks in advance.
Self-guided visits offer time for reflection, rejuvenation, and independent exploration. Consider these suggestions and prompts to enrich your self-guided Museum visit.
Docent-led experiences are guided tours highlighting changing exhibitions and artwork from the collection. Docents facilitate thoughtful dialogue through hands-on materials, storytelling, and interactive questions. Tours also include a hands-on art-making component, which relates to exhibition themes. Learn more about Woodson Art Museum docents.
Museum educators and docents work together to nurture these skills in students:
- Critical thinking
- Close observation
- Visual analysis
- Art appreciation
- Articulating and supporting opinions
AND create the next generation of empowered museum visitors and advocates for cultural experiences.
Notes for educators and chaperones: Prepare for your Museum experience with these suggestions and guidelines.
