NBAM/ARTWORKS! EDUCATION &OUTREACH PROGRAMS ARE UNIQUE &INNOVATIVE.
The Studio Education department is responsible for designing and implementing programs and materials that interpret NBAM/ArtWorks! exhibitions and connect adult and youth audiences to contemporary art and artists. NBAM/ArtWorks! works closely with principals, teachers, and curriculum coordinators to ensure that our programs complement the New Bedford Public Schools curriculum frameworks, as well as the diversity of student learners in selected after-school enrichment programs. Teaching art educators collaborate with classroom teachers in 8–24 week programs throughout the academic year. We partner with human services agencies, local public schools, community organizations, and professional artists in collaborations that draw on the unparalleled capacity of the arts to engage the hearts and minds of New Bedford’s children and youth, while integrating their academic learning and social development.
