This group visit experience is centered around the work in our galleries and encourages students to respond creatively to their observations of the artwork on view.

Begin your visit with a 45-minute tour of PCA’s galleries. Our teaching artists will lead your students through each gallery, engage them in inquiry-based discussion, and help them to find meaning in the work. After the gallery visit, students will respond to their experience by participating in a 90-minute hands-on artmaking activity. Students may work in 2D media including drawing, painting, printmaking and collage.
