TEAM: Thinking Experiences in the Art Museum is a multiyear partnership between the Art Institute of Chicago and Chicago Public Schools.
The project is designed to engage 4th- and 5th-grade classroom teachers and their students in sequential and sustained experiences with works of art that stimulate the development of critical and creative thinking skills, which can be transferred and applied across the curriculum. The Art Institute has recently been awarded a substantial grant to broaden the reach and impact of TEAM by introducing it in 30 CPS classrooms in the 2014–2015 school year.
