The Center offers family programs and community events that explore the collections and special exhibitions. Through gallery experiences and hands-on activities, participants of all ages learn about British art and culture.


Making Sense of Art

Adults from senior care facilities, retirement communities, and independent learning centers are welcome to join theme-based art lessons for a multisensory experience. Led by docents, this program actively engages participants through thoughtful observation of an artwork, sharing ideas, and relating narratives to their own life experiences.

Docents facilitate teaching from the Center’s collections, special exhibitions, and architecture. They lead interactive tours for visitors of all ages and abilities as well as teach specially designed programs. Becoming a docent requires a three-year commitment: one year of training followed by two years of service.
