School Visits and Programs
We welcome pre-K-12 classes to the Museum for gallery and studio instruction. Consistent with current CDC guidance, we encourage participants to “Stay Home When Sick.” Consistent with Cornell policy, masks are encouraged for students, teachers, and any chaperones for gallery and studio instruction sessions.

We offer both in-person and virtual programs, which focus on deep looking, critical analysis, student interaction, and guided hands-on activities. We can adapt our programs to meet your teaching needs, across many grade levels, subjects, and disciplines.
Johnson educators have a combined 60 years of experience teaching in pre-K–12 classrooms and forging connections between museum objects and pre-K–12 curricula. We offer units linking art to a breadth of subjects and disciplines, including social studies, STEAM, language arts, and more.
Our programs offer fresh contexts for students to experiment with ideas, and encourage them to draw on skills they have learned in and outside of the classroom. Driven by the questions and observations students share, our sessions foster curiosity and confidence.
