Homeschool Tour: American Sculpture

For students 5–18 years

FREE

During this exciting 3D experience, students will explore innovations in sculpture from the mid-nineteenth to mid-twentieth centuries. Using the exhibition A New American Sculpture and objects from the Amon Carter’s collection, gallery teachers will demonstrate how artists have shared techniques over time, pushed the boundaries of the medium to achieve new sculptural feats, and used the human form to bridge ancient ideas and modern-day techniques.

Students will be divided into groups by age. Parents may drop off or stay with their students for this tour.

The Amon Carter will only accept registrations from primary caregivers. Registration for this program opens February 15.
