If you can't visit but you want your students to know what is going on at the LSU Museum of Art, please consider signing up for our eNewsletters. They contain information about all of our FREE days, family friendly programs, performances, and speakers related to our current exhibitions. If you would like to offer students who visit extra credit, contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we can arrange a sign-in sheet for your students.
The LSU Museum of Art's (LSU MOA) education programs connect Grade-Level Expectations (GLEs) to exhibitions. Students learn about original art through core subjects like English Language Arts, Math, and Social Studies. By applying skills learned in those subjects, students are better able to retain that information. LSU MOA programs are an engaging educational opportunity for teachers and their students. Download our Spring 2012 Programs now, or contact education curator Lara Gautreau if you have questions.

Deposits and Confirmations: LSU MOA will email or fax you to confirm your reservation. If the day or time you have requested is unavailable, we will contact you to make other arrangements. You must return a signed copy of your confirmation with your deposit which is equal to the minimum amount required ($20). Your reservation is not complete until the LSU Museum of Art has received your deposit and the signed copy of your confirmation form. On the day of your visit, you will only need to pay the balance based on your number of participants. Example: You make a reservation for 24 students. Your deposit is $20. On the day of your visit, only 23 of your students visit the Museum. Your balance due on that day is $26.
Cancellations and No-Shows: A lot of effort and expense goes into providing for your group's visit. Groups that cancel with more than 30 days notice are welcome to reschedule for another day or time. The LSU Museum of Art reserves the right to refuse future reservation requests for groups that cancel with less than 30 days notice, or fail to show up for a scheduled program.
Accessibility: The LSU MOA is handicapped accessible. Wheel chairs are available on request. Seeing-eye dogs are permitted on the premises. Please note any special needs on your reservation form.
