School Tours

For more than 30 years, Project Look has provided fun, educational, and memorable art experiences to thousands of students in Palo Alto and the surrounding area. Project Look provides well-rounded fieldtrips that are educational and fun in a welcoming and accessible setting at a nominal fee. Highlighting the experience of seeing and making art that is central to the Art Center’s mission, Project Look combines an interactive exhibition tour led by volunteer docents with a related hands-on art activity taught by professional artist educators.

Project Look:

  • Enriches the classroom art curriculum and provides opportunities for cross-curricular connections and multidisciplinary education

  • Fosters the 21st-century skills of critical thinking, collaboration, and communication through inquiry and discussion

  • Promotes active participation and appeals to a variety of learning styles by connecting the experience of seeing art in the museum galleries with making art in the Project Look studio
