School + Teacher

School + Teacher

We’re committed to bringing the arts to life through tours and activities designed to spark creativity, communication, collaboration and critical thinking. Programs like Art Detectives and Art Underground bring art to classrooms, while monthly workshops immerse educators in the Speed’s collection and give them dynamic new ideas to take back to their classrooms. School tours allow students of all ages to discover the hidden treasures of the Speed’s collection.

Homeschooling families and groups are welcome to participate in school tours, teacher professional development, and Art Detectives. Click the links below for more information.
