STEAM, Diversity, and Inclusion: Connecting with Chattanooga
The 2018-19 school year will feature the first full year of the new Education Fellows program at the Hunter. Thanks to feedback from the spring semester fellows and area educators, the program will be expanded throughout the school year and will feature curriculum-building workshops as well as hands-on learning and exploration of the arts in Chattanooga.

Education Fellows are encouraged to attend all 4 programs, bring students to the Hunter*, and utilize curriculum and learning tools developed during program sessions. Becoming a fellow requires filling out a short online application and committing to participation. 2018-19 Education Fellows will meet on the following dates for programs:

  • February 9 | 9am – 12pm Creative Problem Solving: Connecting Disciplines in the Class
  • April 27 | 9am – 12pm Project Based Learning Share-Out
  • May 2 | 4 – 7pm Education Fellows Student Showcase

*financial support for tours and October workshop available for title 1 and other eligible schools

Thanks to a generous grant from Unum

Our self-guided tours are free to regional school groups located within a 50-mile radius of the Museum thanks to a generous grant from Unum. We also have a select number of outreach opportunities available for Title 1 schools that partner with us to develop project-based learning experiences for their students.


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.
