School & Teacher Programs

We actively support PreK-12 educators in their quest to bring the best in art and culture to their students. Expand the walls of your classroom by using our permanent collection and special exhibitions to provide new methods of discovery and engagement for your students, and to address student learning objectives in core subject areas. Let our collection inspire and support your classroom teaching!
