Tour Description

During this hands-on tour and art-making experience, students will explore the building blocks that artists use to communicate their ideas–the elements and principles of art. They will investigate how artists manipulate line, shape, color, and other elements and principles, to engage the viewer and to convey mood and meaning. This tour will include the special exhibit Abstract Expressionism: Looking East from the Far West from September 7, 2017 through January 21, 2018. 

Borrow Art
