The Fowler Museum at UCLA provides gallery lessons for K-12 students that address different learning styles through collaborative investigation, engaging conversation, and thoughtfully planned activities. All school visits are booked on a first-come, first-served basis.
We are committed to removing financial barriers for schools by offering all K-12 schools free admission and free guided visits.
If you have any questions relating to 2017-2018 school tours, please email the Education Department.
Guided tours invite students to create connections between artworks, their lives, and the world around them. Students are encouraged to use evidential reasoning to construct interpretations about artworks and develop important cognitive skills that are necessary for 21st-century success.
Each guided tour is led by a trained gallery educator who facilitates students’ cross-curricular connections while developing skills for looking at and thinking deeply about works of art. Students will develop visual literacy and critical thinking skills as they explore our world’s cultural and artistic traditions. In order to foster student discussion, gallery educators utilize dynamic questioning strategies, small-group interactions, peer teaching, and object-centered approaches. All tours are exhibition-based and meet Common Core Standards.
