Gallery Tours

COVID UPDATE: Due to current health and safety concerns, in-person group tours have been canceled. However, we are now offering FREE virtual group tours! The same information below applies to our virtual tour options. To schedule, please fill out the form below. 

 

One of the best ways to engage with the art on view is through a guided tour by a CMA educator. The Museum offers a variety of tour options to student and adult groups of all ages and backgrounds. Each season, our Education team develops new, customized tour experiences based on the changing exhibitions. These tours can be further tailored to meet your group’s special interests or needs.  

 

Guided Tours

Tours led by Museum Tour Guides can be arranged for groups of 12-60 individuals. Guided tours are generally 45 minutes in length.

Tours are always FREE at the Canton Museum of Art and available for all age levels. Donations to help support our Museum, no matter how large or small, are always appreciated.
 

  • Please make arrangements, at least two weeks in advance for a guided tour.
  • Final number of tour attendees is required at least 24 hours before your tour.
  • Any no show or cancelation given less than 24 hours before your tour will result in a $25 fee.
 

Arts Experience Workshops 

  • All groups have the option to add a studio art lesson to their tour!
  • These fun and engaging art lessons deepen understanding of artwork and concepts experienced in the galleries.
  • After your guided tour (45-minutes), students will participate in a 45-minute long art project.
  • Available for all age groups
  • Cost:  $4 per student
  • Virtual  AEW: Materials may be picked up at the Museum 4 days prior to your scheduled tour. Final number of workshop attendees is due 7 days prior to your workshop to allow time to prepare materials.
  • Virtual AEW Lesson available now until October 23: Students will create seed pots using air dry clay based on pottery made by artists from the Zia Pueblo, Acoma Pueblo, and Jemez Pueblo, all groups Indigenous to the Southwestern United States. These artists include Frances Concho, Robert Naranjo, Sofia Pino Medina, and Laverne Loretto Tosa, whose pieces are on view as part of our exhibition, "Stories: BIPOC Artists from the CMA Collection."
