Guided Gallery Visits

Guided Gallery Visits are 60-90 minutes and can be scheduled at the Museum or in the classroom. Led by a CAM Educator, students will learn strategies for looking at art and historical objects through discussion and interactive activities. They are encouraged to make meaningful connections between the Museum’s unique collection, broader themes, and their own lives. All programs can be aligned with Common Core Standards and Massachusetts Frameworks for students grades PreK to 12.  Visits are free to Cape Ann Schools.
