Our Virtual Field Trip will introduce you to our museum and art collection. Through pre-recorded videos, join museum educators as they guide discussions centered around paintings from the Sid Richardson Museum collection. Responses to each discussion can be offered as a class, a group, or individually. All video content is offered in English and Spanish.

Virtual Field Trips are FREE with registration.
