Visit with My Students


Discover works of art, participate in lively group discussions, and apply critical and creative thinking skills in new contexts.

Exciting changes are coming to the Ryan Learning Center next year. 

For ten years, the Ryan Learning Center (RLC) has been a space for art making and participatory learning for school children, teachers, families, and teens—but we know it can do more! Starting in January 2020, we’ll be renovating the RLC to make it an even more accessible and inclusive space for all audiences.

Be aware that some parts of the RLC will be closed this winter and spring, which will impact our capacity. If you can, we recommend you book your visit with us this fall.
