* We welcome tens of thousands of schoolchildren to QMA each year, and one of our most popular workshops for them is our educator-led tour of the Neustadt Collection of Tiffany Glass. Dr. Egon Neustadt was a significant collector of Tiffany glass, and Tiffany’s studios were located not far from where QMA stands and therefore represent an important link to the artistic history of Queens. Workshops begin with a tour of the Neustadt Collection of Tiffany Glass; students then learn about the glassmaking process before moving into our classrooms to design their own “stained glass” windows with transparent papers.

* Our mission is to provide QMA programming and exhibitions that are relevant for every segment of our community. As such, a cornerstone of our Education department are programs for seniors. The Film Series is a seasonal 10-week series on themes tied to current exhibitions; The Looking Series’ features slide talks that use current exhibitions as a starting point for further examinations into the works of art; and The Listening Series features live music in the Museum’s galleries that takes its starting point from the works on view. All programs provide seniors with the opportunity to continue to develop their lifelong interest in the arts while sharing their passion and knowledge with other seniors and visitors to the Museum. The Looking, Listening and Film Series attract more than 6,000 seniors annually.

ArtAccess is the Museum’s nationally replicated model of art education for children and adults with varying physical, behavioral, cognitive, and developmental abilities, and is staffed by two full-time art therapists. For many of the families our ArtAccess programming is their major means of socialization, networking, and emotional support. This past year we were honored with a number of significant awards, including the 2008 Mayor’s Award in Honor of the Americans with Disabilities Act and two 2009 VSAarts National Awards for Excellence: Outstanding Community Partner Award for ArtAccess and Excellence in Leadership Award for ArtAccess Coordinator Donnielle Rome.

Listing as Sponsor for Queens Teens 2009-2010

* QMA’s Queens Teens program introduces talented Queens-based high school students who reflect the diverse population of the borough to the administration of a working art museum. Through structured after-school and weekend activities, students develop a comprehensive understanding of museum education, art interpretation, the curatorial process, and arts administration. On Saturdays and Sundays, Teens work with Visitor Services, the Education Department, and Public Events staff; they conduct gallery tours, assist educators with family workshop programs, and help participants in our ArtAccess program. Queens Teens was awarded the 2008 Presidential Committee on Arts and Humanities’ Coming Up Taller Award, the nation’s highest honor for community arts and humanities programs, but the real success of the program can be judged by the decision-making skills students demonstrate when they complete the program: 80% of Queens Teens go on to four year colleges, compared to the NYC average of 44.3%. Please see a few of our Queens Teens on the NON-GALA web pages: Chat, Donate, and Your Donations Support these Programs.

Advertising for the school tours reaches more than 15,000 students, parents, teachers, and administrators each year, and the program is always booked to capacity.
