Education

The Kruizenga Art Museum offers educational resources to Hope College, community members, K–12 teachers and classrooms, and other colleges and universities.

Gallery AThe Kruizenga Art Museum exhibitions and displays help to complement course offerings in the college’s academic curriculum and usually change, partially or completely, at the beginning of each new semester.

Students play a major role in researching, designing and installing the museum’s exhibitions and displays, and they have the opportunity to work at the museum through class assignments. Others opportunities include formal internships, such as the one created by an endowment gift from John H. Dryfhout ’64, which supports student training and involvement in curatorial and collection management projects.

As a teaching museum, the KAM welcomes and encourages faculty, staff and students from Hope or other institutions to stop by during visiting hours or to schedule a tour. With a collection developed with the classroom in mind, there are many opportunities to relate your coursework to the museum artwork.

To schedule a tour, reserve the Art Study room or for other general inquires, please email us.
