Educators and Schools
Our Education Philosophy
Education at the Nevada Museum of Art cultivates inspired exploration and the use of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics as tools to create wonder, deep engagement, and meaning in the visual arts. Our integration of STEAM education has built a statewide movement.
Our institution pushes the integration of research, education, public programming, and unique exhibitions to build a diverse community of creative thinkers. The Museum boasts a revolutionary philosophy of education that leverages the history of the Museum’s Center for Art + Environment as a testing ground for knowledge creation and artistic production.
