The Queens Museum works with schools and community organizations to develop customizable after-school arts programs utilizing the resources of our permanent and changing exhibitions and our studio art classrooms and workshops.
The Museum’s Education Department works collaboratively with school and community leaders to develop programs that offer personalized art-based learning experiences. Students explore works of art in the Museum’s galleries and reflect on these works as they participate in hands-on art projects that develop skills and address a variety of concepts and themes. Our after-school programs are led by highly accomplished Teaching Artists for a minimum of five sessions that take place in a combination of Queens Museum, school, and community settings. We often integrate after-school arts programs into larger after-school and extended day programs such as 21st Century Community Learning Center programs.
Many of our after-school partnership programs are made possible by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs Cultural After School Adventures (CASA) program. Please contact your local city councilperson’s office if you are interested in working with the Queens Museum on a CASA program.
After-School Programs at the Queens Museum are made possible with support from the Pierre and Tana Matisse Foundation. Additional support is provided by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
