Pre-K / Elementary Programs

The Trout Gallery Education Program provides lively, cross-disciplinary museum programs to Pre/Elementary classes. The programs encourage creativity and learning through meaningful encounters with art and cultural artifacts, and through participation in age-specific group activities and hands-on projects. Class size limited to 28 students. With the exception of programs offered in collaboration with area partners (CALC, Carlisle Parks and Recreation Department), all progrmas are offered free of charge.  

**The Trout Gallery has funds to pay for bus transportation for groups. Please inquire while making a reservation.
