Learn educators | Hunter Museum of American Art 7.0.33-0+deb9u9



Hunter Education Fellows are a cohort of teachers collaborating with the Hunter Museum to create engaging curriculum integrated with and focused on the arts. Fellows explore topics that stimulate reflective, equitable learning in the classroom through professional development workshops throughout the school year.

Each semester, the Hunter partners with teachers interested in connecting with the museum collection. Fellows have the opportunity to bring students to the museum at a discounted rate and to showcase student work in the museum with a celebration of their talent at the end of each semester.

During COVID-19 and due to the limited space in the studio gallery area we are unable to offer student shows in this time of social distancing. We would still like to partner with you in developing and sharing your students’ work. Please email Kris Bespalec at cbespalec@huntermuseum.org to discuss options

Did a recent school trip to the museum inspire your students to create their own artworks? Share them with other museum visitors! The Hunter offers space to exhibit student work on a monthly basis. The Education Studio Hall Student Gallery contains two horizontal panels (one 33 x 4 ft. and one 20 x 4 ft.) that can accommodate two-dimensional (flat) works and limited 3-D works that do not project out more than six inches.

Each school is responsible for hanging student work in the Studio Hall and taking it down at the beginning and end of each monthly term. The museum cannot store student work before or after the school exhibition and does not provide materials or supplies for hanging work. Thumbtacks and/or nails are usually sufficient for hanging artwork on the hall’s corkboard walls. Colorful background paper can be added.

Studio Hall exhibitions must have a title panel with the school’s name, grades represented, and project descriptions where applicable. Individual artwork labels with student names are optional.

The educational programs at the Hunter Museum are made possible by the generous support of:
