ART FOR EDUCATION @ WAAM

About
ART FOR EDUCATION

Our goal is to stimulate community-wide participation in the arts through our outreach and collaboration with schools, artists, educators and families. We provide museum visits, in-school programs, family days and professional development for teachers. WAAM has partnered with libraries, historical societies and community organizations in our efforts to engage area youth and families in the arts.

Problem Solving

We believe access to works of art gives children the problem-solving and creative thinking skills that are critical to their future success as adults.

Visual Literacy

The arts celebrate multiple perspectives. One of their lessons is that there are many ways to interpret the world.

Critical Thinking

Art education equips students to think visually, which can help with problem solving – an ability that is essential for the 21st century.

Art Making

Annual events for kids and families include hands-on art activities and tours relating to our exhibitions and historic Permanent Collection. Such events have included mask-making, wire sculptures, watercolor still lifes, and sidewalk drawings.
