The Norton values its partnerships with schools and educators, respects and admires the essential role of teachers, and is delighted to offer Florida educators, pre-k through college, free admission with presentation of a valid school ID.
Free professional development sessions provide teachers with creative ways to help students connect with art using the Museum Collection in conjunction with Florida State Standards guidelines. These customized sessions include gallery exploration, interactive activities, discussion, and ideas that can be implemented in the classroom.

The Norton Museum of Art is presenting Georgia O’Keeffe: Living Modern, on view from November 22 through February 4, 2019. The Norton seeks middle- and high-school-student art that uses the Living Modern exhibition as inspiration to examine how clothing and accessories are tied to identity. This artwork can be 2D or 3D. Some examples of accepted media are photography, textiles, works on paper, even clothing created by students! Submissions will be considered for a student exhibition at the Norton opening in December 2019.
This program was made possible by the generosity of the Itto Willits Charitable Foundation, with additional support provided by The William Randolph Hearst Endowment Fund for Education and Outreach Programs.
