We are dedicated to providing senior students with opportunities to develop critical thinking, visual literacies and personal perspectives with the understanding that creativity is a vital capacity across all fields.
Our Guided Tours, Workshops and Visual Analysis sessions provide interactive opportunities for participants to develop emotional agility, embodied sensitivity and critical thinking in both making and responding to works of art.
