Through our inquiry-based approach to teaching, gallery teachers help foster close observation, critical-thinking, and rich discussion on tours of our current exhibitions. As part of their training, gallery teachers regularly attend guest speaking events, curator-led content overviews of the exhibitions, and workshops dedicated to exploring art education methodology.
