The primary mission of the Fowler’s Education Department is to strengthen global arts and humanities education – particularly at the K-12 level – by helping to increase understanding of our world’s cultural and artistic traditions.
Encourage students to explore the diverse peoples of the world – their arts, traditions, and beliefs – with a visit to the Fowler Museum at UCLA. Our school visits offer many opportunities to excite, engage, and challenge students of all ages and abilities. As you plan your trip to UCLA, explore different options for your school visit below.
Highly interactive student-centered learning distinguishes the Fowler’s School Visit Program. Trained museum educators facilitate in-gallery lessons that utilize dynamic questioning strategies, small-group interactions, peer teaching, and object-centered approaches. All programs are exhibition-based, and are followed by a hands-on session of age-appropriate art-making and writing experiences.
Schedule a Guided Visit:
If you and your students would prefer to learn at your own pace, please sign up for a self-guided experience at the Fowler. We encourage you to explore our Curriculum Resource Units, which are available for most major exhibitions at the Fowler, and which may be useful as you prepare for your students’ visit.
