Learning at the Blanton
Overview

Overview

To release the imagination is to release the power of empathy, to become more present to those around, perhaps to care.

Maxine Greene (1917-2014), Educational Philosopher, Columbia University

Teaching and learning are central to the Blanton’s mission.  Our team of educators—community volunteers, Graduate Teaching Fellows, and professionals—warmly welcomes all visitors, and designs learning experiences that respond to different learning styles, developmental stages, and curricular goals.  We believe that art matters in people’s lives, and that skills associated with close looking and interpretation contribute to creativity, critical analysis, community, and social justice.
