Educators and Schools
For over 80 years, the Nevada Museum of Art has provided significant arts education programming for the public, school-aged youth, teachers, and artists in northern Nevada. Providing rich cultural programming for the community and region has been a central focus of the Museum’s educational mission, and the Museum seeks to further this important foundation of work. This mission continues in spite of Covid-19. In fact, the pandemic has spurred many innovations in our programmatic offerings that broaden access across the state and beyond.
Foster your student’s learning and your own with services for educators.
Designed to introduce preK -12 teachers to the Museum’s collection and exhibitions, virtual educator programs provide techniques for teachers to integrate the arts into their classrooms, develop lesson plans and workshops, and to share ideas with fellow educators.
