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.
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.
The Frick Pittsburgh is a wonderful place to spend time with your family. We offer programs throughout the year that give families the opportunity to engage together in hands-on learning through museum visits, art making, and outdoor activities on our grounds. Our learning activities are for children of all ages.
Throughout the year, the Frick Pittsburgh presents a wide variety of thoughtful, enlightening, and enjoyable programs for adults. From exhibition lectures and special events to classes and workshops, Frick programming offers numerous opportunities for adults to connect with our collections, exhibitions and each other.
We offer a variety of outreach programs for adults through local libraries, senior centers and community centers, and we also regularly host activity tables at community events throughout the city.
Due to safety concerns related to COVID-19, guided scout programs are currently unavailable.
