Teacher Workshops

Acquire cross-curricular approaches to learning and teaching during evening and weekend sessions for K-12 educators. Interactive gallery discussions, hands-on activities, and immersive studio sessions model ways in which teachers can incorporate object-centric lessons in their classroom while engaging with the Museum's varied resources. Workshops highlight both featured exhibitions and permanent collection objects, focusing on the relationships between visual art and other dynamic forms of interpretation. Please email teacherprograms@slam.org to register or for additional information.


Master Teacher Summer Fellowship

Think aesthetically, culturally, and creatively while promoting arts-based education. The Master Teacher Summer Fellowship is awarded annually to a St. Louis area classroom educator with a vested interest in museum learning. During the four-week summer appointment, the Fellow researches art objects, develops interdisciplinary learning materials, and prepares two museum education programs for teachers and students to be implemented during the following school year. The Fellowship is open to teachers of all grade levels and disciplines who currently teach in St. Louis city and/ or county schools.
Applications due by April 2, 2018.

Teacher Advisory Group

Expand your perspectives as a member of the Museum's Teacher Advisory Group (TAG). Composed of active teachers from all disciplines and grade levels, TAG serves as an invaluable link between the Museum and the St. Louis area teaching community. Members meet regularly to discuss ideas, collaborate on focused projects, and serve as a sounding board for Museum education initiatives, resources, and programs.
