Museum educators welcome opportunities to develop meaningful, specially tailored partnerships with individual schools and teachers, school districts, and youth organizations.

Wearing a bright yellow apron-style dress with strawberries and lace-trim details, an expressionless young woman with medium-dark skin tone rendered in grayscale stares out with her hands in her dress pockets. Her head is cocked to one side against an intensely pink-colored background.

The [AHFES] tour and lesson gave lots of room for students to voice what they saw in artworks, make connections, and ask questions. The design of tour material places high value on kids’ thoughts and opinions…[and] was culturally relevant to my group, as well. SEL (Social Emotional Learning) skills were reinforced by creating a situation where discussion does not focus on right or wrong answers but on impressions, inferences, and questioning.”
