Step Into Art, Inc. is a non-profit organization founded with the mission of providing dynamic, content-rich art education programs that actively engage children with great works of art from Boston-area museums. Each Step Into Art program takes place in partnership with a Boston school. Combining art-viewing, art-making, and imaginative writing, our multidimensional programs offer students diverse entry points for learning and expression.
