The Lillian Orlowsky + William Freed Museum School

Since the 1920s the Provincetown Art Association and Museum has participated in the outer Cape Cod tradition of offering instruction and studio art workshops to visitors and members of our community.

Inspired by the vibrant culture and creative history of the region, PAAM Education promotes the arts as a vital part of everyday life. From our year-round Museum School workshops to our award-winning Youth Programs, all PAAM Education is designed to promote and cultivate the practice and appreciation of all branches of the fine arts; promote education of the public in the arts; and provide meaningful and enriching artistic experiences to all.
