The Newport Restoration Foundation offers educational programs for school and youth groups which enrich classroom learning in Art, Social Studies, and English/Language Arts. Visits to Rough Point Museum are designed to encourage curiosity, critical thinking, visual literacy, communication, and collaboration. All school programs can be adapted to fit specific curricular goals, age ranges, or time constraints.

NRF is currently refining the school programs for all grade levels at Rough Point Museum. The program utilizes primary source and artifact investigation to engage students in critical thinking and historical inquiry at Rough Point. Please contact with questions.

Students build critical thinking skills through close observation of the expansive art collection at Rough Point, the Newport home of Doris Duke. Museum educators use Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS) and other open-ended inquiry methods to stimulate engagement, and students will become comfortable examining, questioning, and drawing conclusions from works of art.
