Teacher workshops are offered during the school year and summer break to provide art teachers and K-12 teachers the opportunity to engage with art techniques and practices, learn new instruction methods, and connect curriculum with the collection and exhibitions at the Museum.
Teacher Workshops are always FREE for teachers in Region 5, Texas and Calcasieu Parish, Louisiana.
