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 and Prescott Farm are designed to encourage critical thinking, visual literacy, communication, and collaboration. All school programs can be adapted to fit specific curricular goals, age ranges, or time constraints. Let us know how we can help!

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.
