The goal of education at the Lowe Art Museum is to facilitate exploration of the visual arts. All educational opportunities, whether led by museum staff, museum volunteers or guests strive to challenge the visitor to engage (individually or as a group) in a learning process utilizing and encouraging critical inquiry, object-based education and visual literacy. Overall education at the Lowe Art Museum intends to provide visitors with the necessary skills to explore the visual arts inside and outside of the museum, to instill a sense of excitement about art among our visitors, and to build lasting relationships between our community and our collections.
