The Museum is Your Classroom
Artwork throughout the museum’s collection can become a tool to meet your learning objectives no matter the discipline you teach. Not only does art reach across curriculum, but it also invites social, emotional, critical, and creative learning. The Educator Residency at Carnegie Museum of Art is a three-week program with an honorarium for multidisciplinary K–12 educators from our partner school districts. As a resident, you will work in small, grade-based clusters with museum educators to explore the museum as an educational resource for classroom learning along with creative recuperation and inspiration.
Educators of all disciplines, artists, field professionals, and museum staff: please join us for Empowered Educators! In this ongoing participatory series, we will deepen our understanding of the ways in which the construction of race and our racialized experiences impact our teaching and learning communities.
Together, we will engage with art, literature, writing through group conversations with artists and guest speakers. Empowered Educators are rooted in liberatory and culturally relevant pedagogies to support us in building a more equitable and just world.
