The AGSM is committed to providing quality programs that help to link art with other classroom subjects, such as environmental studies, math, social studies, language arts, and science. During tours participants interact directly with original works of art in the gallery as they discover creative ways to meet curriculum objectives. Students receive a guided, interactive tour of the current art exhibitions and an option for a hands-on art activity inspired by the artwork.
