    Education Programs
    People shape history. That is one of the central messages NPG brings to life. Corporate partners can help the museum fill a major void by using portraiture to teach history. With “Teachers, Teens, and Access” as a guide, the Portrait Gallery reaches students, teachers, families, and community members onsite, online, and on the road. Sponsors provide critical funding for school programs, family series, adult learning initiatives, and technology development.
