High School Studio Workshops
Single museum visit, 2.5 hours
These multifaceted, half-day art workshops designed for students and their teachers include an in-depth examination and discussion of works of art in the galleries followed by behind-the-scenes access to the Education Studio, where students will create a related art project.
During the workshop, National Gallery of Art educators will encourage students to look carefully at works of art and share their responses, to formulate theories based on observation, and to make connections between processes and results. Students will have the opportunity to create a work of art in the studio inspired by the art they have seen in the galleries.

This multiple visit program introduces upper-level high school students to art history, museum careers, and graphic design.
Advanced Art History Workshop
Working in the galleries with specially trained museum educators, students will hone their skills in careful observation, interpretation, and essay writing through a variety of guided activities.
