School Visits

A curator visits a school and gives a lesson in cooperation with the teacher.
The lecture gives an insight into the jobs of museum staff and curators and teaches how to appreciate an exhibition, using visual devices, replicas of works of art, worksheets, etc. We can present true-to-life replicas, including the National Treasure the Red and White Plum Blossom screen by Ogata Korin and the Tea-leaf Jar with design of wisteria by Nonomura Ninsei.
