Preschool through university educators may schedule free school tours of the Kemper Museum. The objective of the Kemper Museum school tour program is to engage students in discussion about modern and contemporary art and how it relates to students’ education and lives. With advance input from classroom and art teachers, tour content can be tailored to the groups’ needs. Thematic content, interdisciplinary curriculum connections, vocabulary words, etc., can be integrated into guided tours. One chaperone for every ten students is required.
Field Trip Reimbursement Program
Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art invites schools to take part in the Museum’s Field Trip Reimbursement Program. Kemper Museum provides funds to cover transportation costs for school groups to and from the Museum. Middle and high schools can request funds to reimburse costs for substitute teachers needed during field trip hours. The purpose of this program is to engage students in a discussion about contemporary art at the Museum and to make connections between art of today and their everyday lives. For more information about the program, and to request funds, please refer to the Group Tour Registration Form.
Kemper Museum gratefully acknowledges financial assistance for the Field Trip Reimbursement Program, provided in part by the Oppenstein Brothers Foundation, Commerce Bank, Trustee; The Sullivan Family Foundation, Jo Ann and William Sullivan; and Macy’s.
