K–12 teachers: Spend a few summer days preparing for the school year at our annual Teacher Institute! Through close looking and interactive activities, learn how to apply object-based and arts-integrated teaching strategies in the classroom. 

Summer 2024 Teacher Institute: Visual and Language Arts
Monday–Friday, July 15–19, 9 am–2:30 pm
Education Studios, 1st Floor

This year’s five-day workshop focuses on connections between visual and language arts. Drawing on the Museum’s resources, you’ll develop an interdisciplinary lesson plan tailored to your educational setting. Collaborate with other teachers to share ideas and strategies. 

Throughout the week, we’ll weave connections between visual art and poetry, narrative writing, nonfiction, and oral histories. Together we’ll consider key questions: How does art inspire us to share stories? What stories does art tell that teach us about both ourselves and others? 

Registration is $35 for the full week. Additional financial assistance is available. Questions? Email us at
