Art Masterpiece Director Position-Opening

Art Masterpiece turns Madison classrooms into fine art museums filled with hundreds of creative young minds at work.

With an inventory of over 200 separate works of art, our students are exposed to fine art. The children learn about the artists who created these masterpieces and become artists themselves through an art project that echoes the piece about which they just learned. Through Art Masterpiece, their classrooms become art museums!
