For Educators

Art21's Education initiatives engage audiences in a dialogue about contemporary art and the artists featured in Art21 films. Programs are based on the organization’s belief that the art and ideas of contemporary visual artists are powerful models for creative and critical thinking across subjects areas and disciplines.

Inspired by Art21-produced films, in which contemporary artists talk about their motivations and methods, Art21 encourages educators and their students to think and work like artists, using thematic, inquiry-driven processes and strategies that reflect how artists think and make work today.
