Group Tours

fieldtrip class headed to glass studio

Explore, Experience, & Create as a Group!

In addition to all of the many wonderful exhibits, demonstrations, and other attractions throughout WheatonArts, we offer special programs and classes for student and adult groups. At WheatonArts, we value the creative process and the many ways in which engagement with the arts introduces learning skills and strengthens basic classroom curriculum goals.

Arts & crafts classes open a world of creative possibilities for children of all ages. WheatonArts offers hands-on experiences for children in Grades 3 to 6. All grades can visit and tour the internationally-known Museum of American Glass where they’ll discover the science, industry, art, and magic of glassmaking from colonial times to the present.

From April through December, the Artist Studios offer demonstrations & opportunities for students to meet informally with resident artists. As artists share their craft, they discuss materials and the science, history, and social forces that have shaped both art & culture. They answer wide-ranging questions as clay & molten glass are transformed before students’ eyes.

Whether a toddler or a teen, our scenic grounds offer the magic of nature, from the sands that form a major part of the glass to the wide variety of trees and other plant life that help teach lessons in science & nature.
