As part of our mission to create education programs for lifelong learning and discovery, the Albright-Knox is dedicated to developing learning opportunities for teachers as well as students. We offer teacher resources and professional development for educators in all disciplines to support arts integration in the classrooms of Western New York and beyond.
Aligned with state and common core standards, the Albright-Knox’s educational approach will introduce you to how art can ignite curiosity, foster critical-thinking skills, and help you to think creatively about interdisciplinary links to your curriculum.
Learn more below about Educators' Workshops and Virtual Presentations for Educators, as well as how to schedule a private Virtual Educators' Workshop for your school or district.
Our Educators' Workshops for active Pre-K–12 teachers and administrators use artworks on view and reproductions of artworks from the museum’s collection to inspire curriculum development and encourage critical and creative thinking in student learning using Visual Thinking Strategies.
In these free monthly presentations just for educators, we will explore contemporary artists from the Albright-Knox’s collection and public art projects for curriculum inspiration. Join us for discussions on how contemporary artists are exploring what it means to be a citizen in the 21st century and how those themes might engage students in virtual and in-person learning.
