Teacher Workshops

The Museum is dedicated to creative learning for teachers as well as students.

In an effort to support arts integration in all classrooms, the Museum offers a wide variety of teacher resources and professional development experiences for educators of all subject areas. The Museum is an approved Art 48/continuing professional development provider for both Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Check each workshop description to see how many credit hours are available.
