Educator Resources

Designed for educators looking for a way to incorporate ideas and processes explored by artists into your teaching, the following resources propose activities, vocabulary, and concepts for a wide range of students.

Educator Notes

Each exhibition is accompanied by Educator Notes, which provide an exhibition overview, guided questions for conversation, and suggested activities. Please see Educator Notes for current and past resources.

Exhibition Activity Guides

Used as a way to help visitors to slow down and look closely at selected exhibitions, Exhibition Activity Guides embody the practice of the artists whose work is on view and provide an interactive resource to experience art. Please see Exhibition Activity Guides for current and past resources.

Open Studio

Open Studio makes contemporary arts education accessible to educators and students around the world by offering a collection of classroom activities created by noted international artists. The activities cover a wide range of materials, media, and subject matter, and can be tailored to students of all ages. This project was originally conceived by Los Angeles–based artist Mark Bradford for the J. Paul Getty Museum and has since expanded to the Aspen Art Museum and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA).

Please see Open Studio for current and past resources.

AAM education programs are made possible by the Questrom Education Fund.
