Educators

Our education programs are hands-on, collaborative, and impactful, taking inspiration from Warhol’s life and singular approach to making art.

K–12 School Programs

The Warhol’s education team of professional artist educators work closely with teachers and group leaders to develop gallery and studio experiences that are relevant, engaging, and developmentally appropriate.

Our team works with educators to craft one-hour guided gallery tours and three-hour hands-on workshops that can be adapted to meet each group’s needs.

Scholarships

The Warhol is proud to offer a limited number of scholarships for group visits for schools and nonprofit community-based organizations in need. Funding is also available for busing and other transportation costs. To apply for a scholarship, submit a group visit request.

Teacher Workshops

Teacher workshops focus on ways to use contemporary art in your classroom while meeting state and national learning standards. Workshop topics include color theory, aesthetics, collaboration, creativity, and hands-on practices like silkscreen printing. These engaging, participatory workshops help you return to your classroom energized and inspired. Participants may receive Act 48 credit hours.
