El Museo del Barrio collaborates with elementary schools, high schools and community organizations throughout the city’s boroughs to provide programming that allows individuals to explore the themes of identity, community and culture through art.

For each partnership cycle, El Museo’s teaching artists work closely with teachers and administrators of each partnership site to create a tailor-made curriculum, using art as a vehicle for visual literacy, critical thinking, and communication.

Partnerships are typically 10-12 weeks long and include 1-2 visits to El Museo’s galleries. Artwork created during these partnerships is put on display in the museum’s Cuéntame gallery for all to see during the year end celebration.
