Museum Learning Center Portfolios

Drawing from the museum’s nearly 17,000 paintings, photographs, sculpture, drawings, prints, works on paper, decorative arts, and media works, Museum Learning Center Permanent Collection Portfolios are designed to familiarize educators with the subjects, themes, artworks, and artists in the Addison collection, inspire layered connections with curricula and course topics, and foster probing and enlightening class discussions.

Several Guides are being developed for the sub-themes referenced above.
