The Ho Family Student Guide Program at the Harvard Art Museums trains students to develop original, research-based tours of the collections. Participants come from a wide range of backgrounds, including art history, visual and environmental studies, the sciences, history, and literature. Through their training, Student Guides gain knowledge of the collections and develop skills in critical thinking, visual analysis, public speaking, and leadership. This program is supported by the Ho Family Student Guide Fund.
