Pfac’s Art Education Department seeks to provide balanced and stimulating programs of exhibition-based art appreciation that appeals to both children and adults. Inquiry-based and participatory learning coupled with related hands-on art making components help to instill aesthetic values found throughout the artwork on view. The extensive lessons in looking at art are facilitated by a strong docent program that provides tours for each exhibition series.
