We provide pre-K-12 students with fun learning experiences that integrate in-depth observation and interpretation of art and historical exhibits, and hands-on art-making activities. All of our school programs emphasize Common Core standards, particularly in English Language Arts and New York City’s Blueprints for Teaching and Learning in the Arts.
We offer tours and workshops about our permanent exhibitions: The Panorama of the City of New York, The Neustadt Collection of Tiffany Glass, Relief Map of the New York City Water Supply System and the World’s Fair. We also offer tours and workshops inspired by our changing exhibitions of international and local artists.
We collaborate with schools to create initiatives specific to the interests, needs, and culture of each school, ranging from multi-year residencies to one-time workshops. Click here to learn more about residencies.
