MADlab: Arts Access provides free tours to Title One Schools.
Through a generous gift by the Fondation d’entreprise Hermès, with additional support from HSBC Bank USA, N.A. and The Keith Haring Foundation, The Museum of Arts and Design is able to provide free access to Title One Schools.
The Sarah and Seth Glickenhaus Education Center is an open showcase of learning, demystifying the creative process. The goal is to engender an understanding of the creative process and techniques employed in the transformation of materials into art. The Center accomplishes this goal by connecting artists and the public in an interactive learning environment where both new technologies and traditional methods are embraced.
MADlab is the Museum of Arts and Design’s signature school program, offering a 90 minute highlights tour and hands-on workshop in the Museum’s classroom. It is designed to engage students through direct observation, hands-on participation and in-depth discussion.
Each of the core MADlab programs encourages teachers and students to create, explore, and discover the materials and processes involved in producing the works of art we live with. MADlab reveals how craft, art, and design concepts are shaped, inspired, and influenced by social and cultural traditions.
The program uses the many artists available to the Museum through our exhibitions as well as our Open Studio program, where artists are scheduled to work every day on the Museum's 6th floor. Students and teachers get an opportunity to engage in conversation and demonstration on-art making techniques.
Arts Access is made possible by the Fondation d’entreprise Hermès, with additional support from HSBC Bank USA, N.A., and the Keith Haring Foundation.
