Art of Collaboration

By Ashley Weinard, NCMA Educator and Project Director, The Big Picture

Each school year, the NCMA partners with four public school systems to bring our collections into classrooms across North Carolina. Art of Collaboration teachers use the visual arts to engage their students in learning about math, science, social studies, and language arts. Since the project’s inception in 2007, the Museum has partnered with over 120 middle school teachers from 29 schools in 15 counties across the state.

Read about how Rowan-Salisbury schools and Kannapolis City Schools are getting excited to participate in this unique program next school year. Buncombe and Craven County Schools will also be participating in 2012-13.
