A Different Kind of Classroom
The Sordoni Art Gallery provides many ways for visitors to experience the gallery. With a mission to encourage an appreciation of the arts within Wilkes-Barre and the surrounding community, we offer a wide variety of free educational events throughout the year.
Tours at the Sordoni Art Gallery
Looking to bring your family, club or group to the gallery? Sign up for a free Docent Led Tour. Our docents are trained to guide groups through the gallery. A Docent Led Tour can be the perfect way to engage with the arts as Docents lead discussion about the historical significance and visual interest of a variety of artworks on display.
K-12 Arts Program
The Sordoni Art Gallery’s redesigned K-12 Program provides age- and subject-adapted tours and hands-on workshops to encourage an appreciation of the arts and an understanding of its role in society through direct engagement. Prepared by Outreach Coordinator, Karley Stasko MFA, our programming is based around the Visual Art Curriculum Framework and The Standards Aligned System (SAS) developed by the Pennsylvania Department of Education.
