Welcome to the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art’s Art Teaches Remote Learning Portal. 

Here you will gain access to learning opportunities that were created with teachers, for teachers. These art-based learning opportunities are for use in the classroom, in at-home settings or in a hybrid teaching approach.  Each focused curriculum can be used in its entirety or with a building-block approach, using the video tours, lesson plans and art or writing activities as needed or desired. 

NEW Art Teaches Lesson: Ten Symbols of Longevity Screen (debuts January 9, 2024 at 8 a.m.)
Art Teaches: Myriad Treasures

We hope that you’ll find the material easy to use and relevant to your work in the classroom. Designed for students in grades 4-8, we have created ideas for scaling the work to both younger and older audiences and have found the material has been engaging for adults as well.  Please let us know how you have used the materials; your feedback is appreciated!
