Arts Education Programs for K-12

The Brant Foundation strives to uphold its objective of art education advocacy by developing programs tailored to specific grade levels and the core standards of the Connecticut public school system. These programs allow students to learn and work in a contemporary art institution through lessons designed to excite and inspire. More explicitly, because our K-12 programs are particular to individual classrooms, each group’s current in-school curriculum is integrated into the docent-led tour and subsequent art project – making for a highly personalized, unique educational experience.  Through immersive learning, the Foundation’s activities encourage the exploration and exchange of ideas in order to develop deeper understandings of contemporary art and to help navigate today’s highly visual society.

A school visit to the Brant Foundation includes an interactive tour of the exhibition and on-site workshop, providing a stimulating environment for students to examine artworks firsthand, process themes in the exhibition, creatively communicate, and reflect on their own artistic process. We look forward to meeting your students and contributing to the expanding dialogue surrounding contemporary art.

Please contact sabrina.marsalisi@brantfoundation.org for more information on our K-12 Programs, or to set up a visit for your students.
