"Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life." - Picasso

As Picasso recommends, change your routine and expand your mind and soul by Learning.  Our Programs can be reserved as a series, or as a single engagement.  Art for Learning offers two types of programs. One related to ART and another a NON-ART program, purely for touring and enjoyment.

Every ART RELATED PROGRAM is introduced through a slide show lecture and presentation. 
Ms. Urman likes to use a very interactive method to her teachings.  Keeping the size of the class small (15 TO 20) is best so ideas can be shared in an open minded atmosphere where all comments and ideas
are welcome, everyone’s opinion is valid.  Art is brought to life by connecting it to History and Sociology. We hope  to enrich your perspective and insight. 

Art For Learning LLC., is offering a lecture/ presentation plus trips to museums or other sites. We can also offer follow up visits to instruct an art lesson. Ms. Urman or one of her instructors may act as Docent at some sites. Ms. Urman personally works with the Educational Departments to customize the trips, when Art for Learning can not act as Docent. Most of the Art tours will visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Other Museums which may be visited according to the subject are the Guggenheim Museum, New York Historical Society, The Cloisters, Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, Museum of Arts and Design and other various museums which may have special exhibitions.

Ms. Urman would like to provide the option of more advanced art projects which may need several art instructional lessons to complete.  Some of the art lessons would include drawing and painting in Central Park, an unforgettable experience you will always treasure. Some of the programs could be doubled with literature or movies plus discussion lead by Art for Learning.  Most of the programs can be offered as a series which would include lecture, trips and projects. All can be discussed and
customized to fit your needs and wishes. 

The NON-ART programs are unique because in most cases they are not simply tours. Ms. Urman has worked directly with the sites creating or choosing special programs just for your group.  Due to popular demand, we are now offering programs highlighted in our Event Calendar. Maybe you can find something already planned. Just remember we are always ready to customize to your desire.
