NYS learning standards
Museum programs are designed to be interdisciplinary in nature, but are founded in the New York State Learning Standards for the Arts in the Visual Arts discipline. A museum visit provides a starting point for further examination of concepts encompassing math, science, social studies and language arts in the classroom. Our Curriculum Resource Guides, provided to each visiting group, emphasize learning across the curriculum through the visual arts.
