Today's world has many challenges and it may be some time before things get back to normal or we even determine what "normal" is. The Albany Museum of Art is working to support educators and students in every possible way. We believe that is more critical now than ever as we all move to a larger digital frontier. We believe art is a foundational part of education and understanding. Let the AMA, through art, help promote literacy and evidential reasoning, content knowledge and critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity.
The Albany Museum of Art has an exciting exhibition lineup for the 2020-21 academic year. We encourage you to use the exhibits to supplement your curriculum. School programs at the Albany Museum of Art promote literacy and evidential reasoning, content knowledge and critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity.
These provided activities and lessons meet national and Georgia performance standards, and are appropriate for pre-K and up.
You can go online to download teacher packets on each exhibit.
We believe that integrating the arts into other subjects makes learning come alive. This school year, we have adjusted our offerings to fit the needs of the community so that all can benefit from our exhibitions in a safe and fun way. We are offering virtual field trips for schools that are not gathering, as well as limited in-person trips for those that are.
We look forward to seeing you and your students this school year!
