Museum Visits and Experiences

Educators and students have a number of ways to experience the ceramic arts, including museum visits, synchronous and asynchronous virtual experiences, and mobile experiences at school sites. Simple and quick online booking is available, or reach out and connect with a member of our team to create your own experience.

  • K-12 Museum Field Trips: Tour the art galleries with our AMOCA Educators and participate in a hands on air-dry clay activity!
  • Mobile Museum Visits: The Mud Mobile is AMOCA’s outreach program that allows us to bring the experience we provide in our field trips to the classroom. Students interact with artwork from our education collection and create their own air-dry clay project led by our awesome teaching artists. 
  • College and Adult Museum Tours: We offer in person tours for college and adult groups interested in a deeper dive into our exhibitions. 
  • Virtual Tours: We currently offer a 1 hour interactive virtual tour via Zoom, guided by our education manager.
