Center for Education in the Visual Arts

The Clark’s education philosophy differs from that of many museums in that it emphasizes interactive engagement rather than the more traditional one-way flow of information from presenter to audience. This approach, designed to be flexible enough to respond to the different requirements of various audiences, is intended to stimulate cultural, social, and historical awareness and to offer a richer, more personal experience for museum visitors, by helping them to develop their visual understanding, aesthetic sensibility, and their analytical thinking.

The Clark’s Center for Education in the Visual Arts (CEVA) organizes courses and colloquia designed to share as widely as possible the Clark’s philosophy of museum education and direct engagement with works of art.
