“My husband and I… and friends of ours visiting from the UK, had a wonderful 2 hour tour of Chelsea with guide, Mitra.”

I had a fabulous experience with Art Smart. Judith and her staff are incredibly knowledgeable, and they made the whole experience relaxed and fun.

My family had a fantastic experience with Joanna of Art Smart at the Met! She prepared a four hour survey of art history

To grab the Met is a challenge. With Smart Arts support it was a perfect visit… Deep in knowledge and entertaining in communicating it.

Rave Reviews

I wanted to thank Joanna of Art Smart for THE most wonderful tour of The Met today. My daughter and I adored being with you and you were so modest with all of your knowledge and never once made me feel embarrassed asking stupid questions! Milla has been inspired. With HUGE thanks.

I had a fabulous experience with Art Smart. Judith and her staff are incredibly knowledgeable, and they made the whole experience relaxed and fun. I had my girlfriend come in from out of town to visit and I booked a tour with Art Smart not really knowing what to expect but she considered our experience with AS to be one of the highlights of her visit. Would recommend them to to anyone.
