School

School Programs at the Walters are designed to stimulate curiosity, invite participation, and encourage reflection about art as an important aspect of history, daily life, and human discovery. We support the development of 21st century skills through participant driven, interactive conversations surrounding works of art and provide resources and experiences that make the Walters’ collections accessible to PK-12 teachers and students.

The Museum has something for every subject that you teach. Customizable tour themes are available and are tailored to your students’ curiosity. Hands-on studio art experience available to complement your guided tour. All artwork goes back to school with the students.
