How can you get the most from your Museum visit?

We are dedicated to meeting the educational needs of all visiting groups and offer a variety of ways for you to expand and deepen your use of Museum resources. The KMA has developed programs based on thoughtful collaboration with schools and community organizations that can be tailored to meet your needs.

Thinking Through the ArtsThinking Through the Arts engages students’ looking, writing, critical thinking and artistic skills. Led by KMA writer-in-residence Pamela Hart, the program features a series of structured workshops in the Museum’s galleries and school classrooms that culminate in student readings, performances, and art exhibitions.

Thinking Through the Arts is made possible in part by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and with additional support from Gail and Ceasar Bryan. 

Arte Juntos / Art TogetherThis dynamic Museum partnership program is designed collaboratively with schools and community organizations to enrich family learning through art at school, at home, and in the Museum.
