Guided Tours

Guided group tours last approximately one hour and explore the museum’s permanent collection and special exhibitions through interactive discussions and activities. Artist educators work closely with teachers and group leaders prior to their museum visit to craft an engaging gallery experience examining Warhol’s art, life, and legacy and relevant social and cultural issues. Tours can be adapted to meet the specific learning needs and goals of each group.

Guided tour fees

Group admission plus $50 artist educator fee per fifteen people. Two chaperones per fifteen students are free.

Warhol Workshop descriptions

  • Pop Portraits: Examine the many ways in which Warhol created portraits throughout his career, from painting and polaroids to silkscreening and selfies. Students will create a silkscreen print of a contemporary Pop culture icon or a video portrait in the style of Warhol’s Screen Tests.
  • Exploring Warhol’s Print Process: This advanced printmaking workshop introduces students to Warhol’s multilayered screen prints as well as his stamped and stenciled early commercial work, exploring a range of processes and the visual impact of repetition and pattern. Studio projects include silkscreen printing and rubber-stamping.
  • Immigration, Imagination, and the American Dream: Andy Warhol’s parents immigrated to the United States shortly before he was born and struggled to make ends meet as working class Pittsburghers. Learn how Warhol’s immigrant roots and humble beginnings influenced his career and the iconic artworks he went on to create. Using collage and printmaking, students will make projects exploring American symbolism, identity, and cultural heritage.
  • Film & Video: Students will explore the formal and expressive qualities of Warhol’s film and video then create their own screen tests in the style of Warhol using contemporary technology and applications.
