Youth + Educators

Youth and School Programs at the Frye Art Museum provide engaging, meaningful, and accessible learning experience for all students. We design student-centered, developmentally appropriate programs that employ Visual Thinking Strategies and inquiry-based teaching methodology. Through program participation, students acquire 21st-century skills that encourage a lifelong love of learning.
