Cummer in the Classroom and the Weaver Academy of Art
Cummer in the Classroom and the Weaver Academy of Art are two comprehensive art education programs at the Cummer Museum that serve more than 3,000 children (pre-kindergarten through fifth grades) and nearly 200 teachers in nine Title 1 schools, of which an average of 90 percent of the students qualify for free and reduced lunch. This initiative, the largest educational program in the history of the Cummer Museum, provides outreach into the classroom, Museum tours, teacher trainings, free art classes, classroom resources, free family passes to the Museum, and a scholarship program for Camp Cummer to recognize outstanding participation.
Schools participating in the program include: Annie R. Morgan, Biltmore, Carter G. Woodson, Central Riverside, Sallye B. Mathis, Woodland Acres, St. Clair Evans, St. Pius, and Holy Rosary schools.
