School Field Trips to the Armory
What Happens During a New Visions Field Trip? After your class arrives at the Armory, they are led by Armory artists on a tour of the exhibition in our galleries. Students are guided through small group activities, art exercises and discussions relating to themes and concepts presented in the exhibition. Then, students enter our studio where Armory artists guide them through a hands-on art-making project. Working in the medium selected by their teacher (clay, painting, sculpture, printmaking or bookmaking), this standards-based experience allows students to explore the artistic process and create their own work of art. Bring bagged lunches to enjoy in Pasadena’s Memorial Park, it’s right across the street!
