This year this five-day program invites middle school teachers to explore works from the diverse collections of four major San Francisco museums through observation, inquiry, analysis, and reflection. Participants will develop techniques for engaging with artworks and discover how the museum setting fosters critical thinking and creativity. The institute includes close-up gallery experiences, illuminating conversations with peers and museum staff, and useful resources to take back to the classroom.
