The Art of History is a unique classroom-based program combining social studies content with visual arts learning. A New-York Historical Society teaching artist will synthesize American History, art history, and the visual arts in a five-session mini-residency right in your classroom.

The Art of History is language-rich, and supports the Common Core Learning Standards for ELA and helps fulfill the visual arts requirements for ArtsCount.
