K-12 Resources

In the midst of a changing educational landscape, UMMA’s mission remains: to support teachers and students by providing flexible and creative experiences. We will adapt with you and are eager to find new ways to work together.

In-Person Learning Experiences 

UMMA Teaching Learning staff and volunteers are preparing to offer in-person K-12 group tours January-May 2022. Priority will be given to schools: without a full-time art program, in which at least 50% of students qualify for free or reduced lunch, and those visiting UMMA for the first time. Bus grants are available for qualifying schools.

Find Virtual Options: narrated field trips, image portfolios, and lesson plans.
