Looking to Learn at Massachusetts College of Art and Design's Bakalar & Paine Galleries

Creation of a full-time position for a Looking to Learn coordinator and a Gallery Education intern to enhance youth programming.

Founded in 1995, Looking to Learn is a critical Humanities and visual arts program in Massachusetts College of Art and Design's Bakalar & Paine Galleries. Looking to Learn brings urban youth into the Galleries and supplements Humanities and art education in the Boston Public Schools. The program is unique in that it combines guided visits to exhibitions in the Galleries with interactions in the students’ own classrooms both before and after the museum experience. Looking to Learn program elements are aligned with state curriculum standards. Looking to Learn is presently offered to Boston Public School students in the 4th-12th grades as an introduction to contemporary art through an integrated, interactive approach. Looking to Learn promotes visual awareness and critical thinking skills through inquiry-based classroom discussions, group projects and presentations, visits to the Bakalar & Paine Galleries, and art-making projects related to the gallery exhibitions.
