Virtual field trips to intuit
The virtual field trips aim to build teachers’, students’ and general audiences’ knowledge of outsider and self-taught art. The field trips highlight works of art from the museum’s collections and exhibitions in short thematic videos hosted by Intuit staff with guest features by artists and outsider art scholars. Intuit designed the virtual field trips for students at all grade levels in elementary, middle and high school; English language learners; general audiences; and people with disabilities.
This program is supported in part by a grant from the Art Dealers Association of America Foundation.
