School Tours

Gadsden Arts invites educators to engage students in curriculum topics through art. Each school tour is led by an experienced docent and explores the galleries, teaching students to examine art critically. Exhibitions change quarterly so we recommend reviewing the current exhibitions before scheduling a tour. 

If you would like to schedule a school tour, please review the following before contacting our Education Director at 850-627-5023. 

Help us bring the magic of art to our community!
