MeMA’s partnership role is to support the teacher’s success in delivering high-quality arts-integrated programs that provide equitable educational opportunities for students. Our program is not meant to replace traditional curricula, but to supplement and enrich classroom lessons and allow students to make meaningful connections between subject areas.
