School Partnerships

We create long-term, multi-year partnerships with a small group of New York City schools that focus on the whole school community: students, their families, teachers, and administrators.

School Partnerships include guided visits, hands-on art making, classroom visits, family programs, and professional development for teachers. Whitney Education staff works closely with teachers to design customized programs that are tailored to the specific needs of their students and map to their school curriculum. 

Whenever possible, partnership school students participate in special artist-led workshops or presentations. School staff receive educator passes for free admission to the Museum and priority booking for Guided Visits. Partnerships are free of charge for New York City Title 1 public schools.
