As many schools' budgets have been cut, funding for
field trips has been reduced or eliminated. Unfortunately, the opportunity
to visit the Museum of Art and view actual art - not simply a reproduction
- eludes many children in Maine. Realizing that children might not
be able to come to the museum but that art might be brought to them, UMMA has developed a successful school visitation program.
throughout the state, Education Coordinator Eva Wagner presents work
by various artists to the students. The visits are free and include
opportunities for the students to study and explore the art while
about the artists, their techniques and the Museum of Art.
