Come to the Barnes, or we’ll come to you. Our programs will nourish your students’ imaginations and serve your curricular goals.
In addition to Barnes Art Adventures, we offer more ways for teachers and students to connect with art from anywhere with special exhibition resources, programs for high school students, and more.
