Each year, we implement individualized in-class and after-school programs tailored to the needs and interests of our neighborhood middle schools. Our teaching artist works closely with each school's art educator to develop a curriculum focused on exposure to and discussion of contemporary art, strengthening CUE's connection to our local community, and fostering engagement with contemporary art at a young age. Students in all participating schools are led on guided tours of our exhibitions, and participate in critical discussions on the work they see.

For 2016, our partner is New Explorations into Science, Technology and Math (NEST+m). 

New York City public middle schools are eligible for this program. If you are an educator, and are interested in partnering with us, please contact Shona Masarin-Hurst, Programs Manager: shona@cueartfoundation.org.
