Opportunity for school children to experience truly beautiful art
MOA Museum of Art has been carrying out various school programs intended for students and teachers of elementary, secondary, and high schools, giving them an opportunity to have a first-hand experience of the artworks from our museum collection.
Please inquire for details.
A curator visits a school and gives a lesson in cooperation with the teacher.
The lecture gives an insight into the jobs of museum staff and curators and teaches how to appreciate an exhibition, using visual devices, replicas of works of art, worksheets, etc. We can present true-to-life replicas, including the National Treasure the Red and White Plum Blossom screen by Ogata Korin and the Tea-leaf Jar with design of wisteria by Nonomura Ninsei.
