Schools & Teachers




Education is a key focus for Studios on the Park, which seeks to explore and celebrate the creative process and promote critical thinking. The following offerings for students K-12 will help students and teachers to extend their learning experience above and beyond the classroom walls:

School Tours

A school visit to Studios on the Park gives students the chance to experience the art of creation. Through artist-centered guided discussions Studios encourage students to develop critical thinking skills and foster an appreciation for works of art and the creative process. Students learn to look carefully at works of art, speak with resident artists, and share their ideas. This emphasis on analytic skills provides a vital support to art studies as well as other areas of the school curriculum—from observation, analysis, and problem-solving in science to conversation, vocabulary-building, and writing skills in language classes.

We offer three tour packages to choose from:
1. School Tour only
2. School Tour with Hands-On Activity (Grades K - 5)
3. School Tour with Artist Demonstration (Grades 6 - 12)

Accessibility

Studios on the Park is accessible to persons with disabilities. Let us know of any special needs when making your reservation.

Lunch Facilities

We do not offer lunch facilities on site. In addition to the Downtown City Park, there are several local eateries where students can take lunch.

Investigation Workshops

These hands-on, student-centered workshops are designed to complement School Tours. All workshops include a follow-up studio connection and suggested activities for the classroom to enhance the experience.
