Teacher and Educator Open House

Teacher and Educator Open House

Teachers are our best allies when it comes to sharing the PMA collection with Maine youth, and this free Open House shows our appreciation. Teachers in any subject from Pre-K to high school, as well as homeschoolers, are invited to visit the PMA. Spend the afternoon with fellow educators enjoying complimentary refreshments, exploring the galleries, learning about the Peggy L. Osher Art Study and Collection Committee Conference Room and our Collection Online, or participating in interactive docent-led school tours (tour themes include topics on social justice, contemporary art and process, Maine-specific art and artists, and our time-honored tour technique, Visual Thinking Strategies). Please remember—educators are always welcome to visit the PMA free of charge to assist in field trip planning.

Teacher professional development is made possible by the Margaret Coleman Brown Memorial Fund at the Portland Museum of Art and Unum.
