Vinings Schools team up with High Museum for Arts Program

In an effort to improve their visual arts programs, The Lovett School and The Westminster Schools have joined the High Museum of Art in a three-year alliance to share resources and integrate elements of visual arts into their educational curricula.            

“We are delighted to collaborate with Lovett and Westminster to establish our first affiliate agreement with P–12 schools,” says Patricia Rodewald, Eleanor McDonald Storza Director of Education. “Building on our mutual commitment to the integration of the arts into education, this affiliation will deepen our relationship with Lovett and Westminster and engage their communities with great art and programming.”

During this union, Lovett and Westminster students and chaperones will receive free admission to the High’s special exhibitions and permanent collection for school-sponsored field trips. Also, discounted memberships will be available for purchase at the Museum for Lovett and Westminster families and faculty. Students will also have the opportunity to participate in informal discussions or career workshops. They will have access to each of the High’s special exhibition and collection catalogues in their school’s media center.

Teachers, at each school, will also participate in various professional development programs at the High, designed to foster discussion and idea sharing to further integrate resources from relevant exhibitions into the schools’ curricula.
