Learn with Wave Hill
As part of Wave Hill’s dedication to connecting people of all ages and backgrounds to nature and art, the Education Department works with a diverse set of partners, including individual schools, community centers and institutions from across the New York metropolitan area. Our experienced educators work closely with partners to develop and facilitate learning opportunities with their audiences that provide deep and meaningful interactions with Wave Hill on a personalized basis.
These partnerships vary in scope and size—from one session to week-long courses to year-long programs—and are priced accordingly. Wave Hill will work with you to customize a program that is right for you and your audience. Partnerships may also include professional development for participating teachers and administrators.
