School Partnerships

The School Partnership program aims to continue deepening and broadening the Walters Art Museum’s relationship with Baltimore City Public Schools.

The Walters Art Museum in collaboration with Baltimore City Public School teachers are co-creating educational experiences that center the needs of 9–12-grade learners. Through student-led inquiry and research of museum collections, students are able to explore the museum while connecting to their own lived experiences.

Bainder, The Ruth Carol Fund, City of Baltimore, B.J. and Bill Cowie, Citizens of Baltimore County, The Delaplaine Foundation, The Harry L. Gladding Foundation / Mr. and Mrs. Neal D.
