The Wellin Museum of Art offers several ways that educators and administrators can gain a deeper understanding of how to incorporate art into your school. No matter what the discipline, we have tools to build visual literacy in your classroom, as well as in-depth, educator-focused events that relate to our permanent collection and exhibitions.
An Evening of Art for Educators
The Wellin Museum of Art invites you to a reception featuring special tours of the museum and exhibitions, teacher resource kits, and an opportunity to meet museum staff and share ideas. Open to all administrators, teachers, and school personnel.
Visual Thinking Strategies
Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS) uses three questions to guide participants through a creative, thought-provoking discussion that builds visual and verbal literacy skills. The Wellin Museum will train your staff in the VTS method, which perfectly aligns with Common Core goals.
Faculty Meeting Presentations
The Wellin is available to present our offerings to your faculty and staff through in-service day presentations and staff meetings. This is a great forum to hear teachers’ ideas and brainstorm about how the Wellin Museum can be of service to your school.
