Docent-led tours emphasize an interactive and inquiry-based approach to looking at and discussing works of art. Docents will engage your students by visiting several galleries and discussing a selection of art during the hour-long tour, so that students may have time to make quality observations, draw meaningful connections, communicate more deeply about the visual arts, and practice their critical thinking skills. Self-guided tours need not be limited to one hour. For more information please contact Emily Jarvi, School Experience Manager at 616.831.2928 or ejarvi@artmuseumgr.org.
