Learning Through Art

Learning Through Art, an artists-in-the-schools program of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, encourages teachers and teaching artists to design art projects that support student learning across the curriculum. Our program focuses on both looking at art and hands-on art making.
Recent research shows that this combination of activities helps students build important critical-thinking, art, and literacy skills.

This website provides two sets of tools for the classroom. The first is a compilation of suggestions and resources for facilitating discussions around works of art, an approach we call “Inquiry with Art.” The second is a database of selected Learning Through Art projects, or “Art Explorations,” with links to additional related resources. Used individually or together, these resources can support teachers in creating an environment in which students are challenged to think, learn, and communicate.

The Guggenheim’s latest podcast highlights education programs including Learning Through Art.
