Docent-guided school tours provide students of all ages—pre-school, elementary, and high school—opportunities to make meaningful connections with art. Students engage in cross-cultural experiences through careful observation, discussions, sketching, writing, art-making, and hands-on activities with objects. School tours run 1.5, 2 or 3 hours, starting at 9, 10 + 10:30am at the Honolulu Museum of Art and/or Spalding House. Click on the tour titles pictured below to learn more.
