The Weaver Academy of Art at The Cummer Museum was created in 2007 for underserved elementary school aged children. Funded through a generous gift by the J. Wayne and Dolores Barr Weaver Endowment, the program serves over 3,800 students and more than 275 teachers in 8 public and 2 private, Title 1 schools. Students receive curriculum based museum tours, classroom outreach, a day at the annual VSA arts Festival, and free family passes to the museum. Teachers are offered professional development opportunities, lesson plans and free family passes to the museum. The program is expanding with an after-school family component.
