The new One World Project at Mystic Museum of Art (MMoA) is an annual outreach program to enrich school curriculum with the study of art and cultures from around the world. The project is designed to engage students in finding creative new pathways to community with individuals from widely diverse backgrounds. The theme for this inaugural year was architecture.

Starting in the KTJ Studios in September 2023, 18 students from New London High School Multi-Magnet Campus looked at 35 buildings representing many eras, all continents, and differing architectural styles. With MMoA art educator Jeff Crew, they discussed how each building reflects a society’s culture, environment, and history.

Each student then selected one building to study in detail through architectural drawings, plans, and elevations. They experimented with different materials and techniques to create a 3D scale model. In doing so, they embarked on their own creative pathways and joined a creative, global conversation about what matters, and how it can be expressed.

MMoA outreach programs increase public access to art supplies, equipment, and studios, as well as encouragement, affirmation, and instruction.

MMoA art educators provide off site programs in schools, libraries, senior living communities, community centers, and art festivals. On-site programs combine
studio practice with exhibition tours.

MMoA also offers professional and creative development for teachers and other professionals.
