For Teachers

Above: Studio classes and workshops are available for artists of all ages and levels of experience.

Overview

The Education Department offers off-site learning experiences, including an in-school artist in residence program, after-school art classes, and presentations to community groups and centers.

Art Ed Central

Throughout the year the Museum partners with the Alabama Art Educators Association (AAEA) to host monthly professional development opportunities for art educators in the region. Teachers meet at the Museum for a private tour of an exhibition, after which they complete a related hands-on lesson in the Museum’s studio. Each lesson is designed not only as something for each teacher to implement in their classroom but to also inspire their own art-making and artistic expressions.

Art in the Afternoon

The Museum offers weekly after-school art classes at the Mt. Meigs Department of Youth Services. Over the years, students have completed several campus beautification projects and continue to work in a series about different areas of art, including printmaking this fall.

Carryout Creativity Kits

Teachers are encouraged to check out our fully stocked kits to help integrate visual arts into your classrooms. Lessons are available in relief printmaking, landscape watercolor painting, designing with Golden Spirals, and more. These kits are prepped with descriptive lesson plans and enough supplies to allow every student in your classroom to participate.

Kits are free and can be checked out on a two-week basis. Teachers must pick-up and return kits to the Museum.

For details on current themes and how to checkout Creativity Kits to share with your students, contact Brandy Morrison at bmorrison@mmfa.org or 334.625.4365.
