Art Activities

Find resources by the type of activity you’re interested in using. Classroom Activities are those you can use right away in your classroom, before a tour (pre-activity) or after (post-activity). Gallery Activities can be used in the Museum galleries during your field trip. These are great for self-guided tours without a docent, or if you spend extra time in the galleries before or after your docent-guided tour.
