School Programs

The NMMA’s school programs are designed to be a learning experience integrating a regular K-12 classroom’s curriculum and Museum-developed art and culture-based units.  These programs are offered at the Museum and at individual classrooms for little or no cost. Many of the schools the Education Department serves become long-term partners in increasing student learning and academic achievement.
