Extended School Partnership Program


MCASD’s Extended School Partnership Program empowers 6-12th grade teachers to use the Museum as an extension of the classroom. By developing the teacher’s ability to incorporate original art objects into a curriculum, MCASD provides a way to strengthen the role of the gallery as a learning environment. The program consists of professional development for the classroom teacher, class visits to the Museum led by both the classroom teacher and MCASD Gallery Educators and, and a culminating event in which students showcase their accomplishments at the Museum.
