Pre-K–12 School Groups

Teachers are invited to schedule free virtual and in-person experiences for Pre-K–12 school groups, both of which are designed to support the development of the critical and creative thinkers of tomorrow. We believe that when connections are made between classroom learning and the museum experience, students will increase their visual literacy using the language of art.

We are offering two ways to experience our special exhibition space, Albright-Knox Northland, through September 10, 2021. (Please note: The Albright-Knox’s collection is not on view in at Albright-Knox Northland. The museum's Elmwood Avenue campus is temporarily closed for construction as we build the future Buffalo AKG Art Museum.)

Tour Options


Schedule a virtual visit with a museum educator through the AT&T Virtual Field Trips program. These virtual visits will focus on the special exhibition Hervé Tullet: Shape and Color and will include an introduction to the exhibition and interactive opportunities like discussion, drawing prompts, and close looking. 


Schedule a free visit to the special exhibition Hervé Tullet: Shape and Color on Fridays, from Friday, July 2, through Friday, September 10, 2021. For this exhibition, we will welcome up to 15 students per timeslot. These visits include an introduction by a museum educator, a short open-ended discussion about the works on view, and an opportunity to make a collaborative artwork inspired by Hervé Tullet.

Tour Times and Length

We are scheduling special exhibition visits (virtual and in-person) from Friday, July 2, through Friday, September 10, between 9 am and 3 pm. All visits are 45 minutes in length.
