Bus On Us Tour Registration
Bring your students to the Wiregrass Museum of Art during the 2021-2022 school year with our Bus on Us program, a partnership between WMA, Dothan City Schools, and Houston County Schools to provide reimbursed bus transportation for PreK-12 field trips to the museum. We want every student in our local school systems to experience regular visits to WMA so they can benefit from new exhibitions and hands-on art education to cultivate lifelong learning through visual art. Each Dothan City School and Houston County School receives reimbursement for 8 buses covering system approved cost of mileage and bus driver time to the museum, during, and after the museum tour for up to 4 hours.

New Tour Options for 2021-2022! $5 per student
Tours at WMA are composed of both gallery and studio time and are geared towards K-6 grades. On the tour of our galleries, students will be led by one of our trained docents as they learn about select pieces on display. We encourage students to ask questions and tell us their thoughts on the works they encounter. Studies have indicated that using Content Framing Questioning when looking at art can boost literacy and comprehension skills just as they do when discussing literature, so we ensure that students on tour are asked about the artwork they see using Content Framing Questions. Asking these types of questions also increases observational skills which are important in many professions from medical workers to law enforcement officers. By encouraging students to talk about what they see, students leave our galleries knowing that art is for EVERYONE and ANYONE can talk about and appreciate art! After students have toured our galleries, they will enter our studio/classroom to further engage with the artwork they have just encountered on tour. We have three options for the activities and the specific artworks change each semester. Teachers will receive a handout with the state standards that are covered in the activity/lesson. All options include 45 minutes touring the museum, 45 minutes creating a work of art for a total of 1.5 hours at the museum.        See tour page for more information about each tour option: www. wiregrassmuseum.org/museum-tours
