Museum instructors and volunteers provide educational Museum programs to schools and students in the community.

Museum in the Classroom (MITC) art workshops build on art concepts learned from previous classes and years. Museum Explorers programs offer curriculum‐based learning experiences through the use of artifacts and activities.
