School and educator programs use works of art in the Whitney’s collection and exhibitions to create a forum for ideas, debate, and exchange. Programs at the Museum and in the classroom offer students and teachers opportunities to explore American art while learning from artists and each other.
We work with a small group of New York City schools to create long-term partnerships with the whole school community.
Check out our Teacher Guides, designed for educators to use as a resource in the classroom before and after a visit to the Whitney.
