A K–12 School Program in the Arts and Humanities
For more information on school programs, please
The Morgan Library & Museum's school programs are anchored in teaching philosophies that define education as a way of building children's confidence as self-reliant seekers of knowledge and independent-minded creative thinkers.
In a classroom setting, the K12 curriculum in the sciences and humanities is rarely studied through direct observation of primary sources, such as Mesopotamian seals and tablets, medieval and Renaissance manuscripts, rare printed books, master drawings, and period architecture.
The Morgan's architectural complex and world-renowned literary and art collections have much to contribute to K–12 social studies, visual arts, language arts, and a number of scientific disciplines. Exploring with the Morgan, the Morgan's school program in the arts and humanities, complements the school curriculum by engaging students in the direct observation of primary sources. It also offers a unique hands-on experience of rare objects from the collection and unusual art material. The program's focus on multiculturalism complies with The Common Core State Standards and makes the Morgan learning experience culturally relevant to a vast number of students of non-Western backgrounds.
Programs are generously supported by grants from the Brooke Astor Fund for New York City Education in the New York Community Trust; Great Circle Foundation, Inc.; the May and Samuel Rudin Family Foundation, Inc.; MetLife Foundation; the Milton and Sally Avery Arts Foundation; and by the following endowed funds: The Alice Tully Fund for Art and Music; the William Randolph Hearst Fund for Educational Programs; the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Fund for Education and Technology; and the Herbert and Ann Lucas Fund.
