Our docent and education staff-led tours are based in the inquiry-based Visual Thinking Strategies approach. Our art lessons connect with current exhibitions and are aligned with Montana state standards. Tours are available for preschool through adult visitors and are developmentally appropriate. Please let us know in advance if there are specific requests for your tour to best connect with your curriculum.
We are here to work with you in whatever way works best during this new and different school year. The YAM has been open to the public with safe protocols including masks, social distancing, and limited numbers of visitors in the building at any time. You are welcome to bring very small groups of students for tours at the YAM. We are very proud of the online art education and virtual tours we have been offering since March. We would love to see you and your students on whatever online platform works best.
Virtual visits feature inquiry-based tours and artmaking. They are available to classrooms or a mix of school and home-based students. We will adapt to your online platform. We are ready for anything this year!
