About Our Programs The staff at the Rahr-West Art Museum wants to be part of every child's education. We feel the business of a museum is to educate all ages. Helping children make connections and build understanding is an important piece of the education puzzle. We are working to create dynamic, multifaceted, and memorable lessons supported by master artworks in our collection to help students develop creativity, cross-cultural understandings and communication skills. We believe studying the arts will also help improve school attendance, language skills, problem solving abilities, self-esteem, self-confidence, perseverance, cooperation, teamwork skills and overall academic performance. Our hope is for all children to lead lives full of promise and have dreams that come true.
