Event Information

In this four-day program, teachers will visit the collections of the Asian Art Museum, Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (on view at the Asian Art Museum) to explore artworks using observation, inquiry, analysis, and reflection. Participants will develop techniques for engaging with artworks and learn how the museum setting empowers students' critical thinking and creativity.

The institute is designed for high school teachers and includes gallery experiences, discussions with museum staff, and an education packet.
