The Rubin

The Rubin Museum of Art offers schools new and inspiring ways to make curricular connections, inspire learning, and expand opportunities for students and teachers. We welcome all school groups, and offer a range of programs to meet your students’ needs.

Whether you schedule a guided tour for a school group, lead your own self-guided visit, participate in a professional development workshop for teachers, or engage in an art-making workshop, we can help you connect your students to the art and cultures of the Himalayas, India and the neighboring regions.

The museum’s school programs can enhance any subject area, including visual arts, English language arts, global studies, world communities, comparative religions, mathematics, and an array of social studies topics, as well as 21st Century skills like creativity, critical thinking, and global competency.
