The Concept

This incredible 10 day program has been created for Visual Arts students and carefully planned to work in conjunction with our New York Performing Arts program. This will suit schools looking to combine both Performing and Visual Arts students on the same tour.

Students will visit some of the world’s most important museums and attractions including the MET, Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum, MoMA, The Guggenheim, The Whitney Museum of American Art, and more.

Visual Arts workshops are included at some of the major museums; teachers can visit the museum websites for more information on their education programs and to select your preferred workshop. Please note that some visual art workshops may require a minimum number of participants.
