Mayor Richard and Maggie Daley School Studio Program
Want your students to have a hands-on art-making experience in the museum? Select one of the Mayor Richard and Maggie Daley School Studio Programs, which explore art making and materials through the museum's encyclopedic collection. During this two-hour experience, students will start with a one-hour docent-led tour in the galleries, then create original art work with a teaching artist in a studio space overlooking Millennium Park. Studio experiences can are booked through the Student Tour Application and can be found under the listing STUDIO: Art From Many Places Tour (grades 3-5) and STUDIO: Art across Cultures (grades 6-12).
Daley School Studio Programs are supported by the Woman’s Board of the Art Institute and JPMorgan Chase
