A collaboration between the Provincetown Art Association and Museum (PAAM) and Barnstable High School is inspiring people of all ages in our region. Each year PAAM invites groups of students and teachers to its museum and museum school to participate in the Lenore Ross Curating Program. Participants are asked to choose works from PAAM’s permanent collection (which houses over 3000 works of art) and then engage with and interpret these works of art in a variety of ways, including creative writing and studio art sessions, led by professional artists and PAAM’s Curator of Education Lynn Stanley. Art history lectures and talks on interpretation may also be presented to provide a greater understanding of the social context, media, and artists represented. The program culminates with an exhibition featuring both PAAM collection work and the interpretive work of students and teachers.  

Guests are Carl Lopes- Department Head of the Art and Applied Technology Dept. At Barnstable High School, Lynn Stanley, Curator of Education at Provincetown Art Association and Museum, Hannah Carlon and Annie Tamash Seniors at Barnstable High School
