Bringing Art to Life through Multi-Sensory Tours
Dodek, Wendy L.
Journal of Museum Education, v37 n1 p115-124 Spr 2012
Learning occurs in myriad ways yet most art museums remain wedded to visual instruction. Adult visitors touring the galleries are offered audio guides or lecture style tours to complement the visual but are there other ways to enhance learning? This article reports on a case study that found that active, multi-sensory experiences in art museums can encourage adults to construct meaning and more fully engage with art. (Contains 2 graphs and 9 notes.)
