Students will be given an introduction to Blue Line Arts and the work we do for the community before browsing the current shows on display through each of our five galleries by one of our Teaching Artists.  Our gallery shows rotate every 6-8 weeks so there is always a compelling new show to discover!


Our tour guides will use Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS) to start a conversation with students about the art on display.

The VTS method is targeted at developing creativity and thinking skills. It also presents a very effective method for tapping into students' background knowledge and to encourage exploration.


During a hands-on art making session, students will use their own creativity by exploring new art techniques.   

All activities are curated by our professional teaching artists and are inspired by work discovered during the tour & talk.

Bring your class, group or troop to Blue Line Arts for a multifaceted and engaging arts experience!

Tour Talk & Create includes a tour of our high caliber exhibitions using Visual Thinking Strategies to promote discussion. After the tour, students will participate in a hands-on art making activity curated by a professional artist.

Fee is $15 per student with a $90 minimum. Teacher and/or Parent Chaperones are free.
