School Tours

School Tours

For each exhibition, Laguna Art Museum offers interactive school tours for all grade levels free of charge. Tours are facilitated by trained docents and are designed to let students be active participants in the process of looking at, learning about, and enjoying art.
The Education Department consults closely with teachers to ensure that thematic tours enhance classroom learning and support curriculum objectives.
Docent-led tours:
• encourage careful observation.
• foster an open exchange of ideas.
• cultivate connections between art and life.
• create a positive and welcoming learning environment.
• utilize a variety of teaching strategies and group activities to help meet the needs and interests of diverse learners.
Notes about group tours:
• All school or other group tours need to make a reservation at least three weeks ahead of time.
• The museum requires at least one adult chaperone for every ten students.
• Students and adult chaperones are admitted free of charge.
• Museum hours:
Monday – Tuesday, Friday – Sunday: 11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Thursday: 11:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m.
Closed on Wednesdays and on major public holidays.

Art-Making Activities

Due to construction in the museum’s lower level galleries, art-making activities will not be offered this spring. Thank you for your patience while we undergo exciting renovations at the museum!

Please download our classroom art activity ideas based on our spring exhibition Tony DeLap: A Retrospective. Both activities are adaptable to the classroom and correlate with artworks your students will see during their museum tour.
