CTAC - Petoskey Docent Program



Sign-up now for free hands-on learning at the Crooked Tree Arts Center.  We’ve designed our guided tours to be accessible and approachable for all ages.

Here’s what your students will do:

They’ll EXPLORE!

Students will go on a guided tour of the galleries and be introduced to visual language used to describe art.

They’ll EXAMINE!

Through this experience, students will demonstrate critical thinking by discussing and analyzing original works of art. 


Students will use a variety of art materials and methods to create their own work of art related to the current exhibit.

Upcoming tours are listed below:
