Richmond Art Center

Youth Art Tours

Youth Art Tours offer students, ages 7 to 24, opportunities to view, discuss and engage with art. Youth Art Tours run concurrent with exhibition offerings and are always unique to our exhibition content.

In this program, students will receive a guided tour and discussion of the artwork on view by a professional Teaching Artist. Students will also tour the art center to see select active studio spaces. Students will then engage in a unique art-making activity inspired by the artwork on view. Students are more than welcome to enjoy their lunch in our courtyard after the activities! 

Pricing: Tours are a flat fee of $150 for 25 students (or less). Additional students are $5 each. For the safety of the students and our staff, we have a 50 student maximum per visit. We require one parent or aide for every five students.

For larger groups, please contact for potential accommodations.
