I – Spy tours are specifically designed for preschool groups. Students create and decorate a pair of binoculars then use them on their guided gallery visit. Students are encouraged to look for details such as colors, shapes, patterns and textures. The tour is broken into 2, 15 minute sections followed by 30 minutes in our Art Venture interactive gallery. I-Spy tours are an effective way to reinforce early learning concepts outside the classroom.
