From paintings to art installations, you can ignite creative sparks and foster deeper student engagement through Son Tours’ customizable U.S. art tours for middle and high school students. Our art history tours allow students to learn about artistic contributions to a number of art movements from around the world and their lasting effects on the art of today, with works spanning multiple eras, from Neoclassicism and Impressionism to Pop Art and beyond. The artists featured in U.S. art museums and installations represent a variety of styles, often drawing inspiration from the areas in which they lived and worked. With a vast collection of museums, sculptures, public art and more, these tours provide students with the chance to become well-acquainted with creative works from all across the nation and the world.
Our selection of domestic tours allows you to choose from multiple artistically diverse cities all across the United States. Your guided tour group will experience the abundance of culture contained within some of the most artist-friendly cities in the United States. Some of our popular art tours include:
Although Atlanta has many claims to fame, including being the birthplace of international figures such as Martin Luther King, Jr., Atlanta also has a diverse art scene. One of the Southeast’s most celebrated centers for creative expression is Atlanta’s own High Museum of Art. You’ll find exhibits from world-renowned artists year-round and collections that span multiple genres. Students may even find vibrant, sometimes interactive, public artwork installed outside of the museum.
Art students who take a tour of Washington, D.C. have the opportunity to visit the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the country’s very first collection of American art. Other notable museums include the National Gallery of Art, located on the National Mall. There, you’ll find works by famed American and international artists, including Mary Cassatt, Vincent van Gogh, Edgar Degas and Henri Matisse, and many others.
Known as a melting pot of cultures, New York City was the stomping grounds for many American artistic pioneers such as Georgia O’Keeffe, Andy Warhol, and Jean-Michel Basquiat. From artistic approaches to fashion at the Fashion Institute of Technology, to contemporary creations at the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA), New York City offers art lovers a wide range of areas to explore.
Philadelphia’s now-iconic John F. Kennedy Plaza, better known as LOVE Park thanks to Robert Indiana’s large LOVE sculpture, is a favorite of tourists. With its thriving art scene, Philadelphia attracts art creators and admirers alike. You’ll find the Institute of Contemporary Art, African American Museum, Philadelphia Museum of Art, and many other museums and facilities that feature collections from artists created throughout the years.
