Teacher Exchange

In this year-long paid program, Museum educators and teachers from various disciplines learn from one another and exchange ideas about art and teaching. The monthly meetings take place on a day when the Museum is closed to the public. In the galleries, teachers engage in conversations with like-minded colleagues and work with each other to brainstorm ideas for curricular connections. They also have the opportunity to hear from curators, meet with artists, and make some art!

“This program offered an opportunity for me to consider and incorporate some new strategies, information, and artwork into my classroom. It helped me hear how other teachers were thinking of using visual art in their classroom in other subject areas. It also made me more familiar with the Museum’s collection and comfortable taking my class here for a tour.”
