Homeschool Tour: Artists in the Dark

For students 5–18 years

FREE

American artists have consistently investigated the effects of darkness in their artworks and used the night as a source of inspiration within a variety of media. Even though the lights will be on in the museum, gallery teachers will take students on a “dark” journey through the galleries to look at and discuss artworks incorporating nocturnal elements.

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 January 15.

Art and Relationships

Themed Tour

There are all sorts of relationships – love, friendship, family, professional, and others. Relationships have influenced art, made art, and made art collections! The Amon Carter itself had its beginnings in a friendship, and came into bloom through a family relationship. Artists have collaborated, influenced each other, and married each other. This tour discusses how some of these relationships have influenced the museum’s permanent collection. No reservations required.
