School & Teacher Programs

The Vero Beach Museum of Art works closely with the School District of Indian River County and other educational institutions to be a resource for students and teachers throughout the year.

School Group Visits

The VBMA offers free guided tours of the exhibitions to school groups with advance reservation. These visits are designed for students in grades Pre-K –12 and includes resource materials for teachers. The VBMA is happy to work with schools to tours to design engagements designed to connect with your curriculum, key themes and/or concepts being addressed in your classroom.

Please arrange for your visit no later than two to four weeks prior to your requested date by providing details including number and ages of students and adults, date and time requested, and specific exhibitions you wish to have emphasized by the Museum educators and docents.

To book a tour, please call Shanti Sanchez, School, Youth and Community Impact Programs Manager, at +1(772) 231-0707 ext. 117 or email
