Docent Tours for Groups
Writer's Eye tours for groups can be scheduled by calling the Museum Education Department Tour Coordinator at 924-7458 on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tour groups will see the Writer's Eye selections, and conclude with a fifteen minute period for discussion and writing. All tours feature a dialogue format between the docent and the visitors. Writing exercises and activities are generally included. Each tour is individually planned to meet the needs of the visiting group after a consultation with the teacher or leader. 

Teachers bringing groups are encouraged to prepare by previewing the Writer's Eye art selections at this website. After the tour students may review their selection on the website and refer to it as they create their stories and poems.
