Museum-To-Go Program

Bring the Museum Inside your classroom!

Connect your students with art like never before with Museum To Go – a new outreach program from the Canton Museum of Art (CMA).  This FREE, interactive classroom experience ignites imaginations and makes exploration, discovery, and learning fun!  We bring the Museum to your classroom through a virtual exhibit tour, an interactive lesson, and a hands-on art activity.


In a Museum To Go experience, your students will

  • Discover specific works of art, discussing their subject matter, historical periods, creative techniques, materials and meanings.
  • Explore a current exhibit from CMA’s Permanent Collection through a Google Virtual Tour, experiencing artwork in the Museum setting.
  • Connect artwork with themes relating to Common Core Standards in Math, Science, Social Studies, Language Arts, and Visual Art topics.
  • Engage in an experiential, hands-on art project relating to themes being explored in both the artwork and the academic standards.

As a teacher utilizing Museum To Go, you will  

  • Spark critical thinking, problem solving, language skills, and innovation in students through creative exploration of art.
  • Gain access to lesson planning and Museum resources online to prepare for a Museum To Go visit and reinforce subject matter after the visit.
  • Appreciate the flexibility of scheduling an in-class visit year round- and prepare students for a visit to the Canton Museum of Art to experience art firsthand.
