For us, learning is a never-ending process of viewing, listening, talking, and making together.
Everything we organize is an occasion for learning, for creating experiences that show us and our audiences something we did not know beforehand about ourselves, our surroundings, and our communities.

Tours

On weekends, we offer docent-led tours of our ongoing exhibitions. These visits are for the general audience and highlight an artist’s practice, their context, the materials they use, and the possible connections with local concerns. You do not need to be a contemporary art expert to join the tour. All visits start outside of the 315 Maujer entrance, and last between 30-45 minutes. At 2pm we tour in English, and at 3pm in Spanish.

We also offer specialized group tours outside of this schedule for a modest fee. If you are interested please contact tours@amant.org

Young People and Schools

We offer docent-led group visits for younger audiences (ages 9-18). These visits provide an in-depth view of the artists, their contexts, and materials and engage the group through interactive activities that involve personal interpretation as well as creative exercises.

During these visits, Amant provides Learning Resources with activities that help to frame our exhibitions for younger audiences. These Learning Resources are available in English and in Spanish and can be self-guided or led by a member of Amant’s Visitor Experience and Education team.

Tours for schools and younger audiences are free and can be scheduled on Thursdays and Fridays 10-6pm.

Seniors

In our group visits for senior communities, we focus on storytelling and cross-generational knowledge sharing. With the assistance of a Visitor Engagement Representative, visitors view the exhibitions and artworks from up close to develop reciprocal conversations and share experiences afterwards over coffee and tea.

These tours and activities are available in both English and Spanish for groups of maximum 15 people and are designed for local senior centers and community associations.

Learnshops

In our learnshops we delve into a specific concept or question related to an ongoing exhibition. These are small group experiences guided by an artist, writer, or scholar in which audience participation and conversation are key. The learnshops typically last 2 hours and are open to all, but registration is required.

Critical thinking learnshops: in these gatherings collective reading, interpretation, and discussion are the main forms of engagement.

Cross-generational and family learnshops: these group activities are focused on collective creation and interaction between different generations.
