Upcoming Programs and Workshops


Teachers' Workshops and Tours
New this year, CMOA is offering teacher-only evening gallery experiences—a great way to explore the galleries, learn about tour and workshop content, and discover how museum education can enrich your students' learning.

Following a brief introduction, teachers take part in a one-hour version of their selected tour or workshop, and then meet with museum staff to discuss how the program can relate to their classroom curriculum.

Tour and workshop programming happens concurrently on select dates in December, January, February, and March.
