This reference library and workspace is for educators of all grade levels and disciplines who want to make art central to their students’ learning experiences. Consult with museum staff and explore art history and art-making resources, exhibition catalogues, gallery activities, interdisciplinary lesson plans, and teacher manuals.
Groups of educators may schedule free, half-hour orientations in the Crown Educator Resource Center. Classes of pre-service teachers and education students are welcome. If possible, please schedule your orientation at least two weeks in advance.
Please note: The Educator Resource Center will close at 5:00 on Thursday, February 23. We apologize for any inconvenience.
