Students encounter original works of art on tours that complement and enhance classroom learning. They will take time to look carefully, ask questions, and develop their own interpretations. Through open-ended discussion they will discover that questions seldom have a single answer and that art can possess multiple layers of meaning. Their shared endeavor, in which all voices are valued, becomes a powerful learning experience that will be memorable and meaningful.
