Welcome, Educators!

Local teachers using the museum as an educational resource.

The Mint Museum is a rich source for student experiences and teacher professional development that supports learning for all grade levels and subject areas.

Our programs use works of art to engage in thoughtful discussion, close looking, and critical thinking. We hope you can join us this school year at our Randolph and Uptown locations for a tour, training, or workshop that get you and your students thinking like artists.
