NAEA-AAMD Research Study:
Impact of Art Museum Programs on K-12 Students

Loading...

 

The National Art Education Association (NAEA) Museum Education Division and its partner, the Association of Art Museum Directors (AAMD), are in the final year of a large-scale impact study investigating the question, What are the benefits to students of engaging with original works of art within the context of object-based art museum programs that take place during the formal school day? We hope to build on and significantly amplify the limited prior research that exists about the impact of art museum programs on participants. Our goal is to explore, at a large scale, how engaging directly with original works of art within the distinctive physical and social setting of art museums and through constructivist pedagogies, might lead to or heighten a range of student outcomes. The Samuel H. Kress Foundation provided a generous grant award to support the planning year for this impact study, which began on August 1, 2014.
