The Weaver Academy of Art at The Cummer Museum was created in 2007 for underserved elementary school aged children.
I have loved every moment of my time here, and I would definitely recommend the Education Internship to anyone considering applying for the position in the future. I can only imagine what the rest of the summer has in store for me and my fellow interns!
It’s a busy time of year in the education department with the VSA Festival fast approaching. Each year we offer an outreach program to classes of special needs students from schools participating in the VSA Festival. Schools from Duval, St. Johns, Clay and Nassua counties have the opportunity to attend the annual festival.
One of our great African American female artists represented in The Cummer’s collection is Augusta Savage. You may have seen her work when visiting the current Cummer Legacy exhibit, but did you know that she is a native of northeast Florida?
The program serves 8 underserved Duval County public schools where over 3,500 students visit the museum for curriculum and special exhibition tours and participate in outreach activities in their classrooms with Art Connections staff.
