MAM’s commitment to celebrating the art of our time and stimulate artistic creativity has not slowed. Check out our remote learning options below:
FOR TEACHERS, PARENTS, AND CAREGIVERS—
Museum as Megaphone: This FREE distance-learning art curriculum, developed in partnership with Inspired Classroom, allows teachers and students to visit the museum virtually from their classrooms or homes. Modeled after the successful Fifth Grade Art Experience (FGAE) program, Museum as Megaphone includes gallery tours, artist interviews, engaging discussions, and a hands-on art-making activity.
In the wake of rapid school closures due to the coronavirus and the need for social distancing, the education team at MAM quickly modified the program to an "on demand" format where teachers, parents, and caregivers can log on and access the content for free, whenever they like. This OPI endorsed course is wildly popular, with over 20 classrooms and 550 student registrations from across the state. Click here to learn about how to access this program.

Love Letters "On Demand”: This Teachable art curriculum is a FREE distance-learning course related to MAM’s newly installed exhibition, Love Letters to the Collection. While social distancing and online school can be challenging for teachers, parents, and caregivers, this fun and intuitive creative resource will connect kids to some of MAM's Contemporary American Indian Art Collection (CAIAC) and to each other, right from home.
