We encourage you to bring your students to the museum to use it as a teaching tool. The museum staff can provide guided tours and assist with developing assignments that utilize our exhibitions through the initiative “Ask Art: Using the Museum to Make Curricular Connections.” Call, email or stop by to make an appointment today.

"Ask Art: Using the Museum to Make Curricular Connections" is a faculty-led program that encourages engagement between Chaffey College faculty, students, and the Wignall Museum of Contemporary Art. The program consists of faculty advocates, called “Ask Art: Advocates” who work with museum staff to encourage colleagues across the college to use the museum as a tool in the classroom. We create educational guides called “Ask Art: Museum Tool Kits” for most exhibitions to help advocates encourage engagement in their own classrooms and as a tool to offer colleagues. The Ask Art: Museum Tool Kit will assist faculty in developing general questions for viewing, prompts for approaching visual art across disciplines and more. Additional workshops and educational opportunities are offered to further aid in the promotion of the Ask Art program.
