Teacher Institutes during the school year are free and include museum admission. Space is limited and an application is required.

This introductory session explores strategies for touring middle and high school students through SFMOMA. The workshop includes resources for planning a self-guided visit to the museum with your students and an introduction to SFMOMA’s building and collection. Educators will gain tools to facilitate student viewing and discussion of artworks, develop themselves as viewers and interpreters of visual art, collaborate with other teachers, and consider adaptations for use with their own students.
