GROUP TOURS:

@artspace we are putting the A in STEM learning….turning STEM into STEAM with high quality, adaptable Arts integrated learning opportunities!  Our Arts in Education program @artspace is the space where you and your students can engage Arts in various ways.  Using Artists from various disciplines on the Northwest Louisiana Art Directory, we have the ability to create and connect scale-able Arts integrated programming for a range of learners.  Each tour is 1.5 - 2.0 hours depending on the size of the group.  Students will complete 1-2 make & take art activities that are connected to the exhibition.  They will also receive a guided tour of the exhibition(s) that are content appropriate.  Each exhibit has an activity such as a scavenger hunt that helps students engage the artwork through critical observation skills.  

COST - $8/person and no charge for adults or chaperones.  Special pricing for Caddo Parish Title I schools.

Here are a few examples of what we have done in the past and what we can do!

·         Creative Writing where Art is the inspiration point.  Activities could include using art from a current exhibition or installed public art within a 2-3 block radius of artspace and the Caddo Common Link App.

·         STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) learning.  Past activities have included Binary code beading and pointillism activities.

·         Cultural explorations and celebrations.  Activities have included Benjamin Banneker sundials and African dance movement workshop.

Groups are invited to visit artspace during regularly scheduled hours for special tours of the current exhibition with a guided tour by a professional artist, detailing the special aspects of the exhibition, the artists and the artwork.  Call ahead to register your group today!!
