The Museum hosts all 5th graders attending Montgomery Public Schools and offers two curriculum-based tour programs, Becoming Alabama and The American Scene, which other area schools are invited to take advantage of. The curriculum can be adjusted for different grade levels.
Becoming Alabama (Social Studies, upper elementary)
Becoming Alabama, marking the bicentennial of the state, examines themes related to the Civil War, Civil Rights Movement, agriculture, industry, and more. The studio lesson is inspired by Stars Falling on Alabama, and the ARTWORKS component relates to Native American culture.
The American Scene (Social Studies, upper elementary)
The American Scene introduces American visual culture through portraits, landscapes, genre scenes, and sculptures created in a variety of historical eras. Students enjoy related theatrical and musical experiences in ARTWORKS and create mixed-media sculptural works in the studios.
Math tours include calculations related to the building, an exploration of the Fibonacci sequence represented in ARTWORKS, and mathematics connections in works of art. A studio lesson based on the Fibonacci sequence is also available.
Language Arts Tours
Students are invited to write about and share their interpretations of works of art, from stories to poems to other narratives, as appropriate for their studies.
Pre-K tour offerings include representations of the natural world and related studio lessons.
Visual Thinking Strategies
VTS facilitates student-driven discussion of works of art and promotes careful looking and critical thinking skills. An open-ended, student-centered studio lesson is also available.
Tours of Special Exhibitions are offered throughout the year. The Museum also provides highlight and customized tours of the collection, which features American paintings, including regional art, works on paper, decorative arts, select arts of Africa, and more.
The Weil Graphics Art Center
In addition to the exhibitions on view, the Weil Print Room is also available for academic institutions to study requested prints. The collection includes European (from the 15th century onwards) and American prints.
