SFMOMA offers a variety of professional enrichment programs to help teachers expand their knowledge of art history. Special workshops and teacher institutes provide training on how to use the museum's resources, while our teaching aids make it easy to bring art into the classroom. Bay Area teachers can also borrow materials from the Education Department to supplement class curricula; view a list of available materials.

SFMOMA is on the go through early 2016, presenting new art experiences around the Bay Area as we prepare for our expansion. We'll continue to offer special programs and events for educators while our building is transformed.
