ArtLink, PEM’s youth and community partnership program, is a fully subsidized out-of-school learning program for youth in grades K-12. Partnering with North Shore afterschool and youth program providers, the program offers a series of gallery and exhibition tours as well as related hands-on fine art projects.
The program is offered to partnering organizations throughout the school year and features special out-of-school learning programs during school vacation weeks and the summer. Typically, programs last 90 minutes and are offered Tuesdays through Fridays from 2:30–5 pm. The number of visits varies from four to 16, depending on the organization and scheduling capacity. The curriculum focuses on a theme that is developed in partnership with the Youth Programs Coordinator and the community partner prior to the start of the school year. PEM has a growing list of community partners involved in ArtLink, with additional partners joining monthly.

The Peabody Essex Museum’s programs extend well beyond the galleries. PEM’s role in both the greater Salem community and the global community at large continues to transform people’s lives by broadening their perspectives, attitudes and knowledge of themselves and the wider world. PEM’s outreach programs celebrate the outstanding artistic and cultural creativity of our community members. Our programs explore artwork and culture in ways that increase student knowledge and relate to our visitors' lives.
