Explore the visual arts in the Center’s rich learning environment through a docent-led tour, workshop, lecture, or art activity focused on one of our museum exhibitions. Our tours go in-depth on the themes, techniques, and history that surround a work of art, while utilizing Visual Thinking Strategies to encourage audience participation and discovery. Engage with established artists and artists of tomorrow whose work proudly hangs on our Student Gallery Wall. K-12 and adult field trips can be arranged to meet the needs of any classroom and group. In conjunction with museum tours, visual and performing arts standards-based, hands-on activities can be designed to your specifications.
Museum Tours for grades K-12 are $35 per class of up to 35. Additional charge may be applied for a larger group.
STUDENT GALLERY WALL
At the Center, we are committed to partnering with the community and future artists. Our Student Gallery Wall is a space in our museum dedicated to showcasing the work of Escondido’s students. Every museum exhibition features student artwork associated with what is on view in the main galleries.
Take a look at our Student Call for Art to submit your piece to be featured in our summer exhibition, a collaboration with the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego!
Become A Museum Docent! We are always looking for enthusiastic and engaging docents to share their love of the arts with the community! A docent training will be provided to you before the opening of each exhibition. As a museum docent you will enlighten and inspire the community through museum tours, receive invitations to exclusive previews of upcoming exhibitions, museum guest passes, discounts in our Museum store, and more.
