Teacher Continuing Education
Just as we’re committed to educating students, the Frick strives to serve as a dynamic resource for educators throughout the community. Whether teachers are hoping to earn continuing education hours, gather inspiration and lesson plan ideas, network with colleagues, or simply enrich their own knowledge, the Frick offers teachers a range of learning experiences that make return visits feel inevitable. Presented in a variety of formats ranging from one- to two-day workshops to open house sessions, Frick teacher programs are interactive, standards-based explorations into themes in art, history and pedagogy that invite participants to engage, connect, and create.

This program includes resource packs with lesson plans and activities as well as information about new digital collection platforms being used in schools.
