Visits can also be tailored to create relevant connections with current studies, extending the classroom into the Museum.
Combining a one-hour tour with art-making at the Museum, students delve into concepts related to current exhibitions. SAS integrates contemporary visual art and Virginia’s Standards of Learning (SOLs), promoting creative thinking and close looking.
