Delaware Art Museum

This museum is home to the Copeland Sculpture Garden and the country’s largest collection of British Pre-Raphaelite art, as well as American painting and illustration from the 19th century to the present. Theme tours of the permanent collection let groups discuss different genres and individual works of art, and then let them develop their visual literacy by responding in writing to different works of art or by creating their own project in the studio. Other programs bring storytelling, history, and art together with a discussion followed by a tour of relevant works of art.
