We believe art education is a powerful tool for student growth and learning. Our interdisciplinary programs are designed to unlock creativity, explore multiple perspectives, and support students in finding multiple possible solutions to problems. Through observing and analyzing our collection of wildlife art students can investigate themes of history, science, culture, nature, conservation and much more.
The National Museum of Wildlife Art is dedicated to making our art collection and programs as accessible as possible to educational groups. With this in mind, all youth ed tours and school groups, pre-K through grade 12, are offered free of charge. In addition to the grade level lessons posted on this website, we are always eager to discuss the educational goals of your particular class, and customize our offerings whenever possible. We ask that teachers and group leaders schedule at least two weeks in advance.”
We look forward to working with you and your students!

Art Leadership Scholarship in Honor of the Memory of Dick Jennings
Dick Jennings was a board member and dedicated supporter of the Museum. His commitment to the Museum and Jackson inspire us to recognize his memory and to remember how important it is to care about the place you live in, and give of yourself to people and things you feel passionate about.
The National Museum of Wildlife Art annually offers one fine art scholarship of $4,000 to a Teton County high school senior whose passion for fine art and design has motivated them to improve their skills and share their talents with others.
