We support arts learning in and out of the classroom. Our resources and experiences for educators and students include tours, professional development, partnerships, and the Art, Books, and Creativity (ABC) arts-integration curriculum.
What We Offer
Field Trips & Tours
Introduce Pre-K–12 students to visual art and women artists by booking a guided tour or scheduling a self-guided visit. Bus subsidies are available.
Join us for an evening program or one of our multi-day Art, Books, and Creativity (ABC) courses, and leave energized and primed with new ideas!
Our signature Art, Books, and Creativity (ABC) curriculum uses artists’ books to highlight natural connections between visual arts and language arts.
NMWA educators welcome opportunities to develop tailored partnerships with individual schools and teachers, school districts, and youth organizations.
Learn along with colleagues by requesting a customized teacher in-service. We can provide these experiences at the museum or in schools.
Introduce your Pre-K–12 students to art by women, past and present, using our free teacher resources.

Additional support is provided by the Harriet E. McNamee Youth Education Fund, William and Christine Leahy, the Nora Roberts Foundation, and the Junior League of Washington.
See For Yourself Cards
See for Yourself cards highlight selected works from our collection and special exhibitions. Use them in the museum, at home, or in the classroom to engage with artworks, discover fascinating facts, and reflect on your experience.
