Castle MuseumSaginaw Saginaw
The Castle Museum offers the students of the Saginaw Valley a great place to come learn about local history. They can experience first-hand what this area was like hundreds of years ago. They will see the progression from prehistoric times and its artifacts in our archaeology exhibits to the lumberjacks who made history with green gold. From the early businesses and inventors of the Saginaw Valley to the development of the City of Saginaw and other communities, students will learn about their county, culminating in our newest exhibit, Geared for Production: The Story of Automotive Manufacturing in Saginaw.
The Castle Museum also offers virtual field trips. Students of the Saginaw Valley and beyond are able to visit us without ever leaving the classroom. A Castle Museum staff member will share a portion of our museum with your students via the Internet. Teachers can choose from Lumbering, Archaeology, and Geared for Production: Saginaw’s Automotive Story or request their own based on another exhibit.

Chenery AuditoriumKalamazoo Kalamazoo
The Aesthetic Education (AE) Program functions within the collaborative partnership between EFA Teaching Artists and Aesthetic Education-trained classroom teachers. Working together, classroom teachers and Teaching Artist develop and implement inquiry-based, experimental units of study around specific works of art that students view. These units are designed to highlight the possible relationships between an artist's choices and the viewer's aesthetic response. Through participatory activities and reflections, students further develop their capacities for observation, analysis, questioning, and meaning making allowing them to deeply engage with and experience works of art while making connections to their personal lived experiences, the outside world, and beyond.
