Pre-K–12 School Groups

Teachers are invited to schedule free virtual and in-person experiences for Pre-K–12 school groups, both of which are designed to support the development of the critical and creative thinkers of tomorrow. We believe that when connections are made between classroom learning and the museum experience, students will increase their visual literacy using the language of art.

We are offering two ways to experience our special exhibition space, Albright-Knox Northland, through June 3, 2022. (Please note: The Albright-Knox’s collection is not on view at Albright-Knox Northland. The museum's Elmwood Avenue campus is temporarily closed for construction as we build the future Buffalo AKG Art Museum.)
