The Orange County Museum of Art provides FREE guided tours for public school students, grades 2-12. These interactive tours provide a meaningful art experience in an exciting learning environment.
Exhibition Tours for 2012:
One-hour guided tours are offered to groups of 30 or more 2-12 grade students. Tours can be scheduled Tuesday through Friday beginning at 10 am, depending on availability. Students are divided into smaller touring groups of 10 or fewer students. We ask that schools provide one adult chaperone per 10 students. Each touring group will be led by a gallery educator who will follow their own path through the galleries, engaging students in focused observation and discussion of 4-6 objects in our galleries.
Guided tour plus hands-on art lessons are offered to groups of 30 or more public school students in grades 2–8. Tours can be scheduled Tuesday through Friday from 10 am-12 pm.
Self-guided visits are permitted for high school groups of up to 30 students per hour. Self-guided visits are scheduled Wednesday through Friday from 12-4 pm. Self-guided visits must be scheduled at least two weeks in advance to ensure availability. Only visits scheduled in advance will receive complimentary admission. Teachers are encouraged to visit the Orange County Museum of Art prior to their scheduled time in order to plan their visit. Click here for more information about self-guided visits.
