All student tours correlate to curricular standards and are led by a team of professional Gallery Teachers who utilize question-based teaching strategies to engage students in discussions about the works of art. Tours last approximately one hour and can be accompanied by an optional half-hour writing activity in the galleries. School tours are free for students and chaperones.
Let us create a custom tour connecting your curriculum to works of art on view in the galleries.
Tours for Advanced Placement Students
The Amon Carter's education department offers Advanced Placement students a rare and concentrated glimpse into the world of American art. Tours complement the Advanced Placement American literature, Art History, Human Geography, Psychology, Spanish Language, and U.S History curricula. Each tour is interactive and discusses how each work of art is a product of its historical and cultural contexts. Tours may be accompanied by a writing activity in the galleries that will prepare students for the AP exam.
