NMWA’s wide variety of teacher resources and programs provide a fresh perspective on arts in the classroom—explore tours, partnerships, self-guides, and the arts-integration Art, Books, and Creativity curriculum.
NMWA’s thematic, hands-on school tours promote critical thinking and meet specific standards of learning. Students will strengthen visual literacy skills, develop and cement vocabulary, and cultivate observational and evidence-based thinking.
