In the Look and See Program, a year-long study of visual art, young people learn to experience the meaning in works of art as they are introduced to our unique, objective method of art appreciation.  The de Mazia Foundation’s Young People’s Program incorporates visual understanding into our students’ other primary learning skills. We integrate our course across disciplines and within state standards to ensure that students are learning important language skills while learning to see objectively.  Our hope is that learning visual language at a decisive point in their educational life will allow them to objectively see the world with a deeper appreciation.

La Salle University Art Museum is located on the lower level of Olney Hall on the campus of La Salle University at 19th Street and Olney Avenue. Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. Admission is free, though donations are accepted. Please call to schedule group visits. Special tours can be arranged. For further information call 215.951.1221 or visit the website at http://www.lasalle.edu/museum/.
