About School Partnerships:


The Queens Museum Education Department works with our partner schools to create customized residencies that integrate the Museum’s resources into programming that supports academic standards and the goals of each school community. Our extensively-trained and accomplished Teaching Artists and Museum Educators emphasize arts objectives and focus on art technique, art history, and exhibition design to complement classroom instruction and support Common Core academic objectives.
