The National Museum of Women in the Arts (NWMA) in Washington, D.C., "seeks to inspire dynamic exchanges about art and ideas" through its focus on women artists. As part of this, the NWMA provides several thorough educator's guides, each developed in conjunction with past exhibitions at the museum. Each guide is downloadable as a PDF, and in them, readers will find digital images, lesson plans, classroom activities, and more. As an example, the most recently added educator's guide, "Magnetic Fields: Expanding American Abstraction, 1960s to Today," contains eleven digital images, detailed lesson plans for both elementary and high school students, "gallery games" which may be adapted for classroom use, student worksheets, and grading rubrics. Another guide, "Picturing Mary: Woman, Mother, Idea," incorporates the NWMA's online exhibition A Global Icon: Mary in Context and other online resources, and also includes discussion exercises and instructions for a bookmaking activity.
