SFMOMA welcomes you to explore modern and contemporary art and to use the museum's collections and exhibitions as a foundation for teaching and learning. Our Education Department offers a variety of programs and resources for use at the museum or in the classroom, including tours for school groups, professional development workshops and institutes for teachers, online and onsite teaching aids, and school programs designed to encourage the exploration of works of art, enhance visual literacy, and foster critical-thinking skills.
While you are at the museum, be sure to visit our Koret Visitor Education Center. Located just steps from the galleries, this dynamic drop-in facility offers educators and students alike a range of dynamic resources for learning about art.
To register for a specific teacher workshop or institute, please consult the list of upcoming events at the bottom of the Teacher Programs + Events page.
For more information or to request a copy of SFMOMA's school tours and teacher programs brochure, please contact the School, Youth, and Family Programs Office at 415.357.4067 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Beginning on June 3, 2013, the SFMOMA building will be temporarily closed while we prepare for our expansion, scheduled to open in early 2016. In addition to a dynamic range of off-site exhibitions and public programs, we'll continue to offer special programs and events for educators while our building is transformed. Visit our website this summer for more details, and to stay informed about our expansion and upcoming exhibitions and public programs, sign up for e.news.
