Our Mission & Philosophy
The development of this website supports the education department’s mission at the Michener Art Museum: To educate the community about the visual arts through a diverse program of educational activities which seek to develop a lifelong involvement in the arts.
The mission of the education department at the Michener Art Museum is rooted in the inquiry-based approach. Our mission is to provide visitors with opportunities in learning that strengthen observational skills, language skills, problem-solving and critical thinking skills. With these learning opportunities, we hope that visitors will gain valuable insight into the Michener Art Museum’s collection and the historical and cultural contexts in which these works of art are made. Through the use of artworks, we hope to promote the study of the visual arts as a resource for enriching education and to provide applications for everyday life.
