Student Programs

The Peabody Essex Museum’s student programs support classroom instruction and motivate student learning by providing opportunities to discover and explore unique works of art and culture from around the world. Interactive guided tours promote 21st-century skills and use art to create meaningful connections across time and space to your students’ own lives -- sparking curiosity, motivating students’ oral and written expression, promoting critical and creative thinking through gallery-based lessons that align with your curriculum requirements. Hands-on art-making programs focus on the creative process, exploration of art materials and self-expression.

We look forward to hosting you and your students at PEM soon!
