FALL 2023: Due to staffing capacity, the Weatherspoon is unable to offer K-12 tours this semester. Please check back in late fall to schedule visits for the spring semester.
Art & Writing Experience
Art + Writing Experiences (AWE) program offers the opportunity for close observation of modern and contemporary art and includes one or more writing activities. All ages.
Focus on Visual Literacy
Understanding and analyzing ideas and information through images—rather than text—is central to developing visual literacy skills. Artworks are selected to foster collaborative, discussion-based teaching and learning in the galleries. All ages.
Learning to Look
Led by staff or trained docents, students explore the museum as they observe and interpret selective artworks. This tour is perfect for first-time visitors. All ages.
Enjoy these activities at home throughout the year. Guilford County School art educators and WAM tour guides, Tamra Hunt and Lauren Ward have teamed up with UNCG writing instructor and WAM tour guide Julia Ridley Smith to create fun activities for kids and families to try at home.
