Join the National Art Education Association (NAEA) and the Association of Art Museum Directors (AAMD) for a one-day symposium in Detroit on October 13 exploring the impact of single-visit art museum visits on school children.
The NAEA/AAMD Impact of Art Museum Programs on Students Research Initiative is one of the first major research projects to seek a better understanding of and identify the value that art museum education brings to student learning within the formal, K–12 American school setting. This investigation assessed qualitatively and quantitatively the cognitive, affective, social, and other instrumental outcomes, resulting from single-visit, guided school programs.
When: Saturday, October 13, 9am - 6pm
Where: Detroit Institute of Arts Lecture Hall
