Take part in the MCA’s FREE Multiple Visit Program for Chicago Public Schools classroom teachers and their students!
The MCA brings the Common Core to life by offering students a chance to debate, discuss, and connect to works of art through multiple visits to the museum. Designed in alignment with Common Core English Language Arts Standards, this program uses contemporary art and ideas to sharpen students’ critical thinking skills and abilities to engage in meaningful and collaborative dialogue and inquiry.
