Art + Core Connections
Art + Core Connections tours, formerly called Art Connections, have been revised and updated to affirm our commitment to providing opportunities to enrich curriculum content. Looking at art and artifacts brings knowledge and history to life while allowing students to practice skills of communication, collaboration, critical thinking, cultural awareness and creativity. Initial evaluations by educators are enthusiastic, describing, for example, that the tour “did an excellent job of connecting the art to information about the countries of origin that the students already knew. The docent engaged the students in interesting conversations with good, thoughtful questions."
This program is FREE, and transportation is available for schools that qualify as underserved. Ride To Art, a DAI/RTA partnership, provides eligible schools that participate in Art + Core Connections with FREE bus service to the museum on select Tuesdays or Thursdays. There is a limit of one bus, 60 students per bus. If your school has 50% or more of students who QUALIFY for free or reduced lunch, than your school is eligible for Ride To Art.
