Education

Our Mission

The Clark’s mission is to advance and extend the public understanding of art. The mission of the Education Department is to engage the general public with the Clark's collection and exhibitions through programs that create valuable, meaningful, and even transformative experiences for all visitors. The goal of all of our programs is to help people realize that engaging with art can enhance their lives.
