Learning at the Frick
We believe that every visit is an opportunity to learn, to be inspired and to be delighted by art, history and nature, and we offer many different opportunities to learn in ways that mean the most to you.
Take a guided tour of Clayton or explore the current exhibition on your own, join us for a workshop or a lunchtime lecture, or simply walk the grounds and feel refreshed. We welcome you to visit and discover all that you can learn at the Frick.
PLEASE NOTE: We are fully booked for the 2023-24 school year! Field trip bookings for the 2024-25 school year will open on Monday, August 12, 2024.
Our hands-on learning programs for students K-12 are teacher friendly, address academic standards and use art, history, and nature to understand different times and contexts. Frick programs address cross curricular standards, integrating writing, art, science and even economics to broaden student perspectives.

The Frick Pittsburgh is committed to offering engaging, thoughtful student programs both online and on-site in our three museums. Our programs explore the interdisciplinary nature of the Frick—from fine art in The Frick Art Museum, to life in the gilded age in Clayton, to the history of transportation in our Car and Carriage Museum.
At the Frick we not only welcome students, but teachers too! Throughout the year we offer teacher workshops that focus on a wide variety of art, history, and other educational topics through multidisciplinary, standards-based workshops. These programs offer Act 48 activity hours while providing teachers with fresh and practical classroom-ready suggestions.
