Phoenix Art Museum is particularly committed to Arizona’s students. Teachers and students encounter authentic objects from around the globe, ask questions, find answers, and construct their knowledge. The visual arts provide opportunities to engage the creative thinking skills of students across the curriculum and at all age levels while they learn to become passionate consumers of culture in their community.
