Washington, District of Columbia
Program: Art Links to Learning: Museum-in-Residence, Partners: Tyler Elementary, Takoma Education Campus
Art Links to Learning: Museum-in-Residence is a partnership program between The Phillips Collection and D.C. Public Schools. Meeting the community’s need for more impactful teaching and learning, Art Links weaves visual art education with language arts, math, social studies, and science while developing 21st-century skills. Art Links takes a whole-school approach, serving the entire teaching staff and student body of two D.C. public schools—Takoma Education Campus and Tyler Elementary School, both Title I and Arts Integration Catalyst Schools. The program includes in-depth professional development for teachers, in-classroom workshops led by museum educators, visits to the Phillips, and a culminating exhibition of student artwork at the museum. Art Links to Learning is tailored to individual school, grade, and classroom needs. These artworks are connected to the curriculum unit and school themes of “the earth around us,” “the living world,” and “exploring our city.”
