Group Visit Form


School Visits

Glenstone provides opportunities for middle and high school students to learn in an environment which encourages direct connection with art, architecture, and nature.

We have adjusted our school visit offerings to be exclusively virtual engagements through January 2022. If you would like to come for an unguided group visit, please complete the group visit request form.

We are offering three virtual engagement presentations led by our knowledgeable guides:

Visual Dialogues: Drawing at Glenstone

This interactive presentation takes a close look at artwork on view at Glenstone and focuses on critical thinking through close-looking and note-taking through drawing. Grab a pen or pencil and paper and join us, no skill required!

Reading Colors: Color Theory 101 

This engagement is an introduction to color theory and demonstrates how to read colors in artwork and beyond. Students will understand how color can change the effect of an artwork as well as the viewer’s emotions towards the work.

I Love My Leaf: Formalism, Mindfulness, and Plant Identification

In this offering, students will be introduced to the basics of formalism and will learn to apply those principles to looking at plants. They will also be introduced to the benefits of close-looking as a kind of mindfulness activity while slowing down to observe objects.

These virtual engagement presentations are intended for a broad range of curriculum and grade levels, and use interactive exercises to encourage direct engagement!
