Outreach Programs

Are you interested in having a Michener Art Museum educator come to your classroom to teach about the arts in our region? Would you like your students to be introduced to the museum prior to their visit? We have various interdisciplinary outreach programs available for you and your students that teach about the arts of our region while connecting to the larger art world.

Classes are interactive and include hand-on activities that seek to introduce each class to the museum world as well as to the Michener’s permanent collection and special exhibitions. Lessons engage students in interactive activities that help them experience art in a personal way, encouraging exploration, discovery and multiple ways of identifying with a work of art. We can also customize an outreach lesson for you that ties into your curriculum.

Our special Traveling Trunk program includes authentic steamer trunks focused on specific themes, including Pennsylvania Impressionism, Modernism, and George Nakashima, the internationally known woodworker.

Below are programs available, some of which are based on our onsite school visit program. If you are looking for a lesson on a particular focus, our education staff can work with you in developing an outreach program that meets your needs. Many of the lessons can be tailored for different age groups. For more information and program fees, e-mail Melissa Easton Sandquist or call 215.340.9800 ext. 124. Pricing includes $100 for one class period for up to 30 students and $50 each additional class period. Lesson activities are tailored to meet the needs of the age group.
