School/Outreach Programs

Outreach Programs

CMOM can bring the same hands-on learning experience we provide at the Museum right to your institution, library or community center. Our artist-educators arrive at your facility with their overflowing bag of teaching artifacts, materials, skills and enthusiasm! CMOM can teach your students from our celebrated programs or create a unique workshop to enhance your curriculum as a single workshop or a series of workshops around a single thematic program.
 

CMOM Residency Programs

CMOM now offers an exciting opportunity to collaborate and enhance your school or afterschool. CMOM's resident educators will team up to bring engaging and fun-filled educational experiences throughout the school year. Workshops provide support for classroom learning that you can only get with CMOM. Residency programs are designed to work with all types of learners and are grounded in the New York State Prekindergarten and Common Core Learning Standards.
