Opportunities for students + teachers


ASU Art Museum offers a variety of tours to meet the needs of our diverse audiences. All tours must be booked two weeks in advance.

We also offer specialized tours (with one-month advance notice) of our Print Study Room for up to 20 visitors at a time. A customized selection of prints will be displayed for your group to view based on your area(s) of interest.

The exhibitions and collections at ASU Art Museum offer many curriculum connections for classroom use in the concentrations of visual arts, language arts, social studies and science. We provide an optional hands-on art-making activity that extends the tour by 30 minutes. All tours meet state standards.
