TUNE IN Art products are designed around selections for the Official Lists of the Texas UIL Art Contest (which change every two years), but they make excellent classroom instructional materials as well.  Each UIL Official List includes 40 paintings, from the holdings of the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D. C. and from selected museums throughout Texas.  Our audio CD tour is easy to use with prints.  The video tour is self-contained.  A printed picture-by-picture teacher's discussion guide accompanies each tour to make teacher preparation a breeze. From Renoir to Rothko, from Ribera to Matisse, these  tours will educate and entertain your students.  If you can't take your class to the art gallery, bring part of the gallery to your classroom!  We hope you can take your class to one or more of the Texas museums.
