58 fifth and sixth grade students will have a guided tour of visual arts exhibits at UMD's Tweed Museum of Fine Arts.

Guided tours at the Tweed Museum of Art offer preK-12 school teachers additional ways to inspire students, make curricular connections, and expand learning opportunities. One-hour programs help students develop visual literacy and critical thinking skills through inquiry-based, students centered discussions. Students gain an understanding of visual art as a reflection of the cultures, histories, and aspirations of the people of our region.

Tours are designed to encourage student participation and interaction.

Tours are conducted by Gallery Teachers, made up of trained University of Minnesota Duluth students and community volunteers, as well as museum staff.

‚ÄčThe second hour will be a tour of the UMD Planetarium.

‚ÄčThis art experience is funded by the Silver Bay Charitable Fund of the Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation and sponsored by the Northern Lake County Arts Board.
