OUR EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS
Educational programs encompass both introductory and advanced levels, as well as programs tailored specifically to museum professionals. Introductory classes serve as a public outreach, bringing awareness to the importance of historic exhibits and collections. Professional programs give museum staff an in depth look at the various aspects of taxidermy and exhibit fabrication, in ways not previously available. For each level of experience, anticipated course options will include classes in the field, in the studio, and online.
For field experience, sign up for an expedition class at our 170 acre historic Catskill Mountains Campus just 150 miles from New York City. Studio classes will give students the opportunity to work in a space which is actively servicing museums, enhancing the overall experience and fortifying a real-life connection. Online courses will be taught by leading professionals in the natural history arts. Students will learn rare skills that have been passed on from master to apprentice for generations.
