tour for your students at the Frederic Remington Art Museum is easy. We offer
differentiated instruction for all age levels and accommodate for special needs
and learning styles. Your visit can be tailored to meet your groups specific
needs. We have a variety of tools to aid in the understanding of art processes
used to cast bronze pieces and also can explain in detail art movements and art
periods using original Remington paintings as examples. Also, Remington
captured the spirit of westward expansion in many of his art works. Many of the
pieces we have correlate specifically to exact moments in United States
history. School groups will enjoy visiting the galleries with drawing boards
and sketching original art work. We can also provide scavenger hunts that will
aid in understanding the rich history of the Parish Mansion (the home that
houses our collection) and the galleries where we house our original Remington
pieces. If your group is at a younger age level, they may enjoy a puppet show
that details the story of Frederic’s exciting life instead of the usual
introduction. Also, schedule time for them to visit Kid’s Place, our children’s
museum, where they can enjoy interactive exhibits and even a Remington related
art project.* Read further to find out how to book your tour, what our rules
and regulations are, and how we can help you to create a meaningful and rich
experience for your students.
Option ONE - $2.00 per student*
Depending on the size of the group, students would arrive either as a large group at the main Museum or in smaller groups between the main Museum and Kid's Place. When students are at the main Museum, they will receive a seated introduction while we explain our rules and guidelines, and then commence on a guided tour of our galleries and displays. When they arrive at Kid's Place, they will also receive an introduction, afterward having access to the play areas and crafting supplies in art studio. Museum staff will be on hand, and we also require that there is one chaperone on hand for every 5 students.
*As always, there is no charge to Ogdensburg City Schools unless they request an art activity
o Option TWO - $7.00 per student
Depending on the size of your class, students may be broken into two rotating groups between the children's Museum and the main Museum. This option includes a structured art project based on Frederic Remington's work and themes in his work. The art activity is chosen by the person setting up the tour in advance. All art projects are designed to aid the students in anticipating what they'll see at the main Museum and remembering facts about Frederic Remington and his work. Each activity is based on New York State Art Standards and has been written for a specific grade level. Museum staff will be on hand, and we also require that there is one chaperone on hand for every 5 students.
