High Museum of Art

When students experience the High Museum of Art’s tours and workshops, they will become engaged in conversations about works of art and ideas. Guided tours help students develop visual literacy skills and extend their reading, writing, listening, speaking, and viewing of artwork. Programs also explore history by examining works of art as primary sources that reveal information about the times in which they were created. All programs meet current state standards.
