A tour of exhibitions at SMoCA can enable students to actively use critical thinking skills and inspire more creativity and motivation to learn. Tours address Arizona Visual Arts Standards and National Core Arts Standards. Exhibitions at SMoCA change three times each year. Plan to visit in the fall and spring to teach students the art of looking at art. School Tours are Free and are available Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, from 10 a.m.—4:30 p.m. and Thursday, from noon—4:30 p.m.
Please give a minimum of three weeks’ notice for tour reservations. Your booking is not complete until you receive a tour confirmation from us.
