Welcome Back, Teachers!


A big part of my job is planning professional development programs for educators.  This year we are offering a variety of experiences, including Saturday teacher workshops, Evenings for Educators, and new Thursday evening programs for teachers.  Through these programs, we want to help teachers connect with works of art in the Museum; with people, including artists, museum educators, and classroom teachers; and with creativity – that of artists as well as their own. 

Here are some tips about how to join us this year and how to get the latest information for teachers:

  • Learn more about our programs for teachers in 2009 – 2010 by checking out our newly designed Web site with more accessible information about Saturday teacher workshops, evening programs, and summer programs.
  • Send your name, school name, and email address to teacherprograms@DallasMuseumofArt.org to receive the latest news in our new monthly Educator E-newsletter.
  • Join us for a new series of monthly Thursday evening programs for teachers.  Arrive early for a little social time with DMA education staff and other educators in the “Teachers Lounge” in the Atrium Café.  Food and drink are available for purchase.
  • Stay tuned to this blog to get behind-the-scenes info about the Museum and how we serve students and teachers.

I hope to see you at the Museum soon.  Have a great year!
