Literacy Through Art
Literacy Through Art (LTA) is a school outreach program for WNC counties in which the visual arts are utilized to explore the language arts. The program is supported by annual contributions from school districts, grants from private foundations, from state and federal sources, and from Museum general operating fund allocations.
For the 2020–2021 school year, we have adapted this program to fit the needs of teachers working in the classroom, virtually, or a mix of formats. Virtual LTA provides all the same curriculum objectives and fun artmaking projects. Teachers and students participate through live-streamed, interactive Virtual Visits to the Museum accompanied by three digital units consisting of videos, art activities (materials included), and literacy-based projects inspired by artworks in the Museum's Collection.

Literacy Through Art is supported by the Blumenthal Foundation and the Bank of America Charitable Foundation.
