Gallery Education

Educational Gallery Tours

We offer educational guided tours for elementary to college-level students, as well as organized community groups of 10 or more. These tours can last from 30 minutes to 1 hour, offering background information on the exhibit content as well as an engaging experience in observation, discussion, and meaningful personal connections. There is no admission fee for these tours, but reservations are required. 





Imagine the Schaefer Gallery as your classroom! ARTWORKS guided education tours focus on exhibits in the Gallery, and are designed for Grades 3 – 12. Tours are tailored to complement the content of each exhibit and each age group, providing an informal creative setting for student participation. All tours meet the Hawai‘i Learning Standards for visual art and integrate into other core curriculum areas.

Instructors will introduce students to artistic concepts, process, and techniques, beginning with a walkthrough of the exhibit and an activity in the gallery, then followed by a hands-on art-making project.
