NAEA-AAMD NATIONAL RESEARCH STUDY: IMPACT OF ART MUSEUM PROGRAMS ON K-12 STUDENTS

What are the benefits to students of engaging with original works of art within the context of object-based art museum programs that take place during the formal school day? The Museum Education Division has been exploring this question in earnest since 2011, partnering with the Association of Art Museum Directors (AAMD) on a multi-year national research study. The project is investigating how single-visit programs (or field trips) to art museums affect K-12 students’ skills and capacities, looking at grades 4-6.
