Art Across Curriculum (AAC) programs are designed to both offer educators a menu of enrichment options, and to train university students studying education to integrate the visual arts into their classroom curricula. As a unit of Marquette University, The Haggerty Museum of Art fully embraces Ignatian Pedagogy (IP) in our teaching methods. IP is a practical teaching framework that creates opportunities for personal and cooperative study, discovery, creativity, and reflection to foster lifelong learners.
AAC program costs vary. Request a scholarship for your students here. Our programs are supported by generous donors.
