The Schneider Museum of Art would like to encourage you to schedule free tours of our exhibitions. Tours of the winter exhibition, Shapes of Curiosity, Southern Oregon University Creative Arts Faculty Exhibition, will begin Friday, January 27th.

A visit to our galleries will provide your students a valuable opportunity to meet the Oregon Arts Content Standards in a meaningful, fun way. We offer a variety of tour options that will help you tailor your visit to the standards you would like to meet. Our options are:

  1. Full Museum Overview, 30 – 60 minutes
    Best for community/university groups. Full tour of the current exhibition discussing the art, the artists, and their techniques. Time requirements for this tour are flexible. Recommended group size of up to 30 participants.
  2. Artist Overview and Scavenger Hunt, 45 – 60 minutes
    Best for Grades K-5. Brief overview of select artwork that approaches the exhibition theme, with free time afterward to complete a scavenger hunt. Recommended group size of 15-25 participants.
  3. Standard Themed Tour and Writing Worksheet, 60 – 75 minutes
    Best for grades 6-12. Docents will lead students in discussions and thought exercises addressing selected standards during a tour of the exhibition. Included is a reflection worksheet for students to further explore these standards while examining three of their favorite pieces in the museum. Recommended group size of 15-25 participants.
