Mayor Richard and Maggie Daley School Studio Program
Want your students to have a hands-on art-making experience in the museum?

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
