The Online Curriculum provides teachers with visual and written materials to support the use of FWM's unique exhibitions and collections in the classroom. These lessons can be used to develop concepts and themes related to specific classroom curriculum or to contemporary art in general.
Using the Online Curriculum can help teachers prepare students for a museum visit by providing information about the themes and ideas within FWM's permanent collection, and assist educators in developing classroom lessons focusing on contemporary art. Designed primarily for K-12 grade educators and students, it is organized into Four Themes that are age-appropriate.Visit online curriculum
Evenings for Educators
Evenings for Educators are offered each Fall and Spring semester and are designed to stimulate educators' interactions with FWM and with their peers. Teachers and arts professionals can step outside of the classroom to explore how contemporary art, and FWM programs in particular, can enliven classroom discussions and activities. Evenings for Educators will demonstrate ways for educators and their students to become involved in FWM's school-museum collaborations including Study Tours, the Apprentice Training Program and internships. Educators can learn the basics of silkscreen printing or other printmaking techniques and have a tour of the exhibitions on view in this informative session.
