In April of 2022, the Mead Art Museum at Amherst College announced a “Mead on the Move” initiative, a program that brings art education from the museum’s galleries into pre-K through 12th grade classrooms.

“Mead on the Move” draws from the Mead’s core teaching themes designed to complement Massachusetts state learning guidelines. The themes include representing the self and others, stories in art, and playing with process, which pays homage to the artist’s known or unknown work in making and creating.

All interested instructors in the Amherst area can register their class for free on the museum’s website. Visits are developed and facilitated by the Mead’s trained and paid student museum educators from Amherst College and led by Museum Educator Olivia Feal. Teachers can default to the Mead for a lesson on one of those themes or work with the staff in advance to specialize a lesson. For More information, visit the original news story below.
