Museum Student Guide Program
Our Student Guide Program presents a unique opportunity for FAC museum patrons to engage with current Colorado College students in dialogue about the exhibitions and artwork and perhaps even an interactive activity while you tour the galleries with inquiry-based art cards, visual analysis games (e.g., scavenger hunts and dice) and exhibition-related creative projects (e.g., community loom, zine-making, and collage-making). Student Guides understand the variety of tools available to visitors that lead to deeper understanding of art and artists, and connect visitors with these tools to enhance their experience.
