Title I: Arts Access

Free inquiry-led tours and hands-on workshops for Title I Schools in NYC

Title I schools receive free inquiry-based educational tours at the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) through Arts Access. All of MAD's tours align with city, state, and national learning standards, and are custom-designed and taught by our Artist Educators.

During these tours, students will:

  • Experiment with art, craft, and design processes to consider how objects are made.
  • Learn about careers in art, craft and design.
  • Experience an orientation to museums and art spaces.
  • Make connections to classroom experiences and current events.

Visit MAD’s Artists Studios, where students meet and speak with a practicing artist-in-residence.

MADlabs and MAD tours are offered at 10:30 am, 1:00 pm or 3:30 pm, Monday through Friday all year round.

Group size and chaperones
Each tour can accommodate up to 30 students and five adult chaperones, with up to two tours running concurrently (60 students total). One chaperone is required per ten students.

Title I schools in NYC are free under the Arts Access Program. Reserve your visit! 

Arts Access is supported by the William Randolph Hearst Endowment Fund for Education and Outreach Programs, and public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, the Keith Haring Foundation, and the Windgate Charitable Foundation.
