School & Educator Programs

School & Educator Programs at the Frye Art Museum provide engaging, meaningful, and accessible learning experience for all students. We design student-centered, developmentally appropriate programs that employ Visual Thinking Strategies and inquiry-based teaching methodology. Through program participation, students acquire 21st-century skills that encourage a lifelong love of learning.

Professional Development for Educators

Educators are invited to experience current exhibitions, explore hands-on techniques inspired by art and artists on view, and learn how to build creative confidence and communication skills in students.

Parent/Art Docent Workshops

Frye Educators provide training in facilitating inquiry-based discussions and leading student-centered art-making lessons, sharing best practices for building 21st century skills through close observation, open-ended discussion, and hands-on exploration.
