Smithsonian American Art Museum Education Department

The Smithsonian American Art Museum engages many audiences interested in learning about American art from many perspectives. Adults participate in docent-led tours and discussions. Students learn about American history through American art with engaging and reflective interactive tours and real-time video conferences. Our local and national programs for teachers offer year-long professional development opportunities. Extensive and award-winning online resources are a keyboard stroke away. Girl Scouts can earn our museum patch. Deaf and hearing visitors in the galleries and on-line can learn and share together through Art Signs.
