Program Schedule

The Manhattan Art Tour registrants meet on four alternate Wednesdays and Thursdays with each session consisting of morning and afternoon talks and/or tours led by in-house gallery, museum, and atelier experts. An hour break is offered in-between sessions for a “dutch” lunch at a neighborhood restaurant and is a favorite time for participants to catch up and digest the day’s experience.

Classes typically run 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and meet at the first stop on the itinerary or at the clock in Grand Central Station, depending on the day’s targeted neighborhood. A complete schedule with detailed information is released two weeks prior to the first tour date.
