SliceofArt_FINAL LOGOThe Slice of Art program at Art Center Sarasota provides fun and educational art experiences for students and adults through exciting guided tours of Art Center Sarasota’s changing exhibitions and hands-on art making activities.  Slice of Art tours for students in grades 3-12 are age appropriate and designed to capture the student’s imagination. The tours include connections to science, social studies, and other subject areas. The Center’s Slice of Art coordinator works with teachers to develop curriculum connections and leads discussions in the galleries relevant to issues in student’s lives. After the gallery tour, students enjoy a pizza lunch and refreshments followed by a forty-five minute art-making workshop using high quality artist’s materials.
