WMA has developed a brand new virtual tours program in which we bring the museum to you! 

Your students will have the opportunity to explore some of the works currently on display at WMA, led by our wonderful docents. This 45-minute tour is split into three 15-minute segments, each focusing on different works of art. Teachers will receive a packet with discussion questions and a choice board activity to accompany the experience.

This is an asynchronous experience that teachers can incorporate into their classrooms or assign for students to complete in their own time. The discussion questions and choice boards are standard, though there is room for some customization to fit your subject/grade level and are designed to work for your students in person and those working remotely. For more information, contact Brook at: brook@wiregrassmuseum.org.

Up to 10 students: $15
11 to 20 students: $25
21-30 students: $35
Dothan City Schools: FREE

Once registered you will receive a confirmation email and materials will be sent within one week of registration. If you have any special curricular requests (for the accompanying activities), we will contact you to discuss and accommodate your request as best we can. Please note that special requests may take longer than a week to fulfill.

This program is made possible by a partnership with Dothan City Schools.

Youth Art Education Policy

Outside of tours, family days, and open house events, individuals who are not enrolled in a class are not allowed in WMA classrooms except by written permission of the Executive Director. Parents may not join children in the classroom during instruction times in order to ensure an atmosphere conductive to creativity. It is important to limit the number of adults to keep the focus on the kids, their learning, and to accommodate limited seating in the studio. Parents are welcome to stay in the museum during class but must remain outside of the classroom during instruction time.

Museum educators are experienced in creating positive learning environments for all ages and are required to go through a background check to ensure the safety of our students. Parents and guardians are encouraged to visit the studio at the end of class to see what their child has created. All docents and volunteers working with children are also required to go through background checks.

Thank you for understanding our policy and priority on the safety and well-being of participating students.

Refund Policy

The Wiregrass Museum of Art may cancel any class with insufficient enrollment; students will be notified and given a full refund. If a student withdraws at least 1 week before the class begins, he/she will be refunded for the full cost of the class. If a student withdraws 24 hours before the class begins, he/she will be refunded for half the cost of the class. There are no refunds after the start date of class, and membership fees are nonrefundable. Students are not enrolled until complete payment is received.
