This five-day program invites middle school teachers to explore works from the diverse collections of four major San Francisco museums through observation, inquiry, analysis, and reflection. Participants will develop techniques for engaging with artworks and discover how the museum setting fosters critical thinking and creativity. The program includes up-close gallery experiences, illuminating conversations with peers and museum staff, and useful resources to take back to the classroom. Three Continuing Education Units are available from San Francisco State University at an additional cost.
Presented by the Asian Art Museum, de Young Museum, the Legion of Honor, and SFMOMA.
The Discovering Connections Teacher Institute costs $250 and space is limited. Scholarships are available.
