Professional Development


Educators' Open Houses, offering exhibition previews and receptions especially for educators, and Teacher Workshops, offering focused interactions with artwork and themes, demonstrate ways to approach the inclusion of art in grades Pre-K through college and in all subject areas. Programs offered throughout the year in conjunction with the Addison's changing exhibitions can be complemented by individualized meetings with teachers, administrators, departments, and/or schools.

Teacher Guides that complement the exhibitions and workshops are available free at teacher programs, from the website, or by request.

Professional Development Opportunities
The Addison Gallery collaborates with teachers, administrators, and community leaders to organize customized professional development sessions. Sessions can be held at the museum, schools, or community organizations and focus on integrating visual images into classroom curriculum or after school community-based activities.
