Option 2: Art and Narrative Students are guided through out current exhibitions and explore how individual and group narratives can manifest in contemporary art.

Option 3: Art and Careers Students will learn about different career options in museums and the arts. ZMA staff will explain the different roles and responsibilities that make up a museum.
