El Museo del Barrio's educational outreach program promotes diversity, equity and access to the arts by increasing the availability of arts programs to disadvantaged children in low-income under-served schools and community based organizations. El Museo is particularly interested in increasing school participation in District 16 through its Arts Partners programs, which promotes arts education as a crucial component of K-12 curricula and encourages positive inter-cultural experiences, creative self-expression, and pride through arts education.
