FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW DOES IT WORK?
An experienced educator visits your classroom and brings all necessary materials. Our teachers have a strong background in arts education and love teaching your students about their amazing surroundings!
We will work to make our lessons applicable to your studies. Recent examples include incorporating Greek/Classical architecture, New York City Landmarks, geometry, and green buildings into our classes. We are one of the only programs in NYC that creates a custom walking tour for each different school that we work with.
HOW IS IT SCHEDULED?
Most programs include three one-hour visits and are scheduled to be convenient for the school. It can be three consecutive Wednesdays, three days in a row, or any arrangement that is mutually agreed upon. There is also an option to combine two lessons into a longer two hour and 15 minute session. Please inquire for details. Most programs includes two classroom sessions and one walking tour.
WHAT IS THE COST?
Please contact us for program fees, as they vary based on which program you choose and the number of sessions. A reduced fee is possible in cases of documented need. Payment by check is required before the first visit.
WHAT ABOUT THE WEATHER?
We teach our programs throughout the entire school year. Please have your students dress comfortably to be outside for one hour on walking tours. If inclement weather may hamper a walking tour, our educator will be in contact with you in advance to make an educated decision and potentially reschedule.
CAN PARENTS JOIN THE WALKING TOUR?
This is up to the school and their policies, but we do require 1 adult for every 10 children on the walk. Typically we have about 3-4 parent chaperones, which can be a big help on our busy NYC streets!
