Special Education

Today's special needs students face many challenges, which may impede or outright prevent them from taking field trips to museums. Museums with Marisa programs fill the gap by bringing a museum directly to your very own classroom, community center or other location.

Marisa Horowitz-Jaffe has been teaching and working with special needs students for over 20 years. She was even part of the team that created a groundbreaking access program at The Museum of Modern Art, and she directed the Access and Community Programs at The Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City.

 

Marisa believes that art transforms and enriches our lives, builds self-confidence and strengthens critical thinking skills, and that experiencing and making art are vital to childhood development. Marisa can alter any of her programs and activities specifically for students in special education classrooms to enhance their visual literacy and communication skills.

Please contact Marisa to discuss details for your specific group.
