The San Antonio Museum of Art will evaluate the effectiveness of the School Partnership Program (SPP), a customized arts-based education program; and the Guided Tour program, a single-visit 50-minute school tour program, in order to determine appropriate adjustments to museum teaching practices. This initiative will conduct much needed audience-based research that will help educators justify the instructional time and cost of integrating art education into their curricula. Upon completion of the evaluation, staff will analyze the data to better understand the effects exposure to art museums has on students and determine which best practices to apply to the development of the SPP model, the Guided Tour program, and other family programs and resources.
