High School Programs

Through the high school programs at the National Gallery of Art, students engage with original works of art, learn to think critically about art and art history, and experience the museum as a resource for lifelong learning. Drawing on the Gallery’s permanent collections and special exhibitions, the programs are led by specially trained museum educators who facilitate interactive discussions.

High School Seminar 2.0

This 10-session program introduces upper-level high school art students to the study of art history, art-making techniques, and museum careers.

High School Studio Workshops

These two-part workshops include an in-depth examination and discussion of works of art in the galleries followed by a related one-hour studio activity.

Advanced Art History Workshops

Working in the galleries with specially trained museum educators, students will hone their skills in careful observation, interpretation, and essay writing through a variety of guided activities.
