Educators exploring the exhibition during a Teacher Professional Development Workshop

K12 Groups 

Explore works of contemporary art in the 2013 Carnegie International with museum educators through engaging dialogue, writing and art-making activities, collaboration with peers, and independent exploration. Discussions and activities connect students to a guiding question: How do these works of art (in terms of imagery, form, process, and context) show the artists’ take on their experiences? How is this relevant to your own experiences?

K–12 groups will be able to choose from two options for museum visits to the 2013 Carnegie International from October 15, 2013–March 9, 2014 (space is limited):

  • 90-minute Guided Gallery Tour: $10/student
    Students will participate in inquiry-based dialogues about thematic groups of artworks with museum educators.
  • 2-hour Gallery-Studio Workshop: $12/student
    Students will discuss works of art and engage in related art-making activities in the galleries with museum educators.

Contact the Group Visits Office at 412.622.3289 or email to register at least four weeks prior to your intended visit date. Be ready with the following information: date preferences (have three dates in mind), arrival and departure times, group size and grade level, and lunchroom requests. You will receive confirmation by email. Final attendance numbers and payment are due one week in advance of your scheduled visit. A $15 late fee will apply. A museum educator will contact you to finalize program content. Your prompt response is necessary.
