NEW BRITAIN MUSEUM OF AMERICAN ART

School Visits

Works of art in the Museum’s collection are rich, primary source texts that encourage interdisciplinary learning for all grade levels. The NBMAA offers school visits that are designed to enrich curricula and engage students in dialogue as they view artworks in the galleries and create projects in the American Savings Foundation Art & Education Center. 

Preschool and kindergarten teachers are invited to participate in visits designed to introduce young children to the museum experience. These 45-minute classes will incorporate stories, close looking in the galleries, and an exploratory hands-on art project.

Elementary, middle, and high school teachers may choose from our selection of hour-long themed tours and related studio activities. Each program connects directly to the National Core Arts Standards, as well as one core curriculum subject. Contact Coordinator of Academic Programs Mary Claire Reidy, Coordinator of Academic Programs, at (860) 229-0257, ext. 235 or reidym@nbmaa.org to learn more about how the NBMAA promotes arts integration with the CT Social Studies Frameworks, Common Core Standards for English Language Arts and Math, and the Next Generation Science Standards.
