Studio Collaboratives

In this two-part series, a Museum educator works with the classroom teacher to design a customized program and visits the school a week before the Museum visit. During the Museum visit, students spend an hour on a guided tour in the galleries followed by an hour of art-making in our Whitney Studio. It’s a great chance for students to see and make some art!

Fee: FREE for New York City public schools in kindergarten through twelfth grade. All other schools may participate at a cost of $500 per group.

Group Size: 25 students or less; due to limited space in the studio, we cannot schedule any larger groups. Detailed information on group sizes, dates and times for Museum visit are on the online Studio Collaborative application form.

Note: This program is only for schools within the five boroughs of New York City.

Studio Collaboratives are SOLD OUT for spring 2014. We invite you to participate in a  Guided Visit. Sign up soon!

All programs address the New York State Learning Standards and focus on school curriculum areas including art, English language arts, social studies, and technology. Programs address the New York City Blueprint for Visual Arts Strands I–IV.

All programs at the Whitney also support classroom learning in the ways encouraged by the Common Core State Standards. Our artist-centered, inquiry-based tours and multi-part programs develop skills in evidential reasoning, critical thinking, and public speaking.
