The Queens Museum Education Department works with our partner schools to create customized residencies that integrate the Museum’s resources into programming that supports the goals of each school community.
Residencies can emphasize arts objectives and focus on art technique, art history, and exhibition design or they can mirror classroom instruction and support Common Core academic objectives. Residencies can be project-based or integrated into service learning projects. They can be designed to reach every student in the school community or to strategically target subgroups of students; for example, those not enrolled in art classes or those who might benefit the most from alternative learning experiences and settings.
Our goal is to collaborate with school partners to develop programming that utilizes Museum resources to maximize the benefit to students. These resources include:
All our residencies ideally include a visit to the Museum and a culminating celebration of student work that can be shown at the school, or when possible in the Museum’s Community Partnership Gallery.
To discuss a school residency, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Queens Museum Education Department works collaboratively with schools and community organizations to develop customizable after-school programs that offer personalized art-based learning experiences at your school or organization. Students reflect on Museum exhibitions as they participate in hands-on art projects that develop skills and address a variety of concepts and themes.
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.
