Upcoming Programs and Workshops

Teacher Advisory Board 2.0
We are excited about the new direction of Carnegie Museum of Art’s teacher advisory board! Instead of assembling a new board around each exhibition, we’re bringing together a group of teachers to commit to a two-year paid contract to work with CMOA Education staff.

We currently have 14 teachers from a variety of schools, grade levels, and disciplines working with us, and now we are looking for seven new teachers to join us as half our group rotates out this summer.

Teachers selected for the Board will work with CMOA Education staff to understand the ways that objects and exhibitions in the museum can complement schools’ learning objectives, and make a guided museum visit valuable to all K–12 teachers. This may include conceptualizing and drafting curriculum-related materials and resources (either physical or online), recommending topics for teacher professional development workshops, and/or developing related evaluation measures for these programs. We are looking for a balance of teachers from a range of schools/districts, grade levels, and disciplines/subjects. We are particularly interested in having a mixture of art and non-art disciplines.

Applications are due Monday, June 1, 2015. Final decisions will be announced on Friday, June 12, and contracts will be mailed out by Friday, June 26. The first opportunity to join a meeting will not take place until July 2015 at the earliest.

Apply Today! Complete the Teacher Advisory Board Application to be considered for the upcoming rotation.
