The Dalí Museum is bringing the culture and art of Salvador Dalí into the classroom virtually. Pinellas County high school and middle school art teachers can set up this unique, interactive learning experience in their classroom, whether teaching face-to-face or online. Via Microsoft Teams or Zoom, a Museum’s trained docent will guide the class through Dalí’s key works, while teaching about Surrealism, Dalí’s inspiration and the culture of Spain.

Two themed offerings are available based on the needs of the classroom and are adapted to showcase grade-appropriate concepts between 6th and 12th grades:

  • Dalí & Spain: Students will explore how the people, culture and landscapes of Spain shaped Dalí’s art and life. This theme is the #1 most requested field trip tour theme at The Dalí.
  • Big Ideas: Students will learn how Dalí sought knowledge and looked to different disciplines for inspiration. From dreams, math, science and religion, Dalí expanded his world with the goal of inviting viewers to see differently.

Each offering lasts 30-45 minutes depending on the length of available class time. Self-administered tours and activities will be provided for students to explore the Museum prior to and following the live interactive program via The Dalí Museum App, 360 Tour and other educational activities to further enrich the live experience.

Currently this unique introduction to The Dalí Museum and Salvador Dalí is open to Pinellas County schools only, for a $180 fee per classroom.
