Welcome, educators! The Art Institute of Chicago is a rich resource for student experiences and classroom resources that support learning for all developmental ages across all subject areas.
Programs for students engage participants in close looking, thoughtful discussion, and critical thinking with works of art, and connect these experiences with visual art to classroom learning and students’ personal experiences. Explore the diverse experiences we offer for student museum visits, from docent-led tours to hands-on, art-making workshops.
Visit the Educator Resource Finder to be connected to a searchable database of all of the classroom resources we’ve created about our collection.
