Tours and Outreach
Education staff and docents welcome students, teachers and organized adult groups to "our space" at two venues, the Smithsonian American Art Museum and its Renwick Gallery. At the American Art Museum, interactive tours yield lively exchanges about our collection as windows on the American experience. At the Renwick Gallery, visitors handle and explore unique craft objects by contemporary artists to learn about process, material and technique. Note: The Renwick Gallery is currently closed for renovation.
For students and adults in metro-Washington, D.C., who cannot visit our museums, for example, adults with mobility issues or students who are incarcerated, our docents can present programs in "your space".
Via real-time interactive videoconferencing, our Education team can work with your students across "cyber space," offering a full range of programs through Artful Connections. For adults nationwide with mobility issues, our docents are available for telephone conversations featuring our artworks.
