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 school tours and Art Detectives allow students of all ages to discover the hidden treasures of the Speed’s collection, both at the Museum and in the classroom. Professional development sessions immerse educators in best practices for teaching with artworks the 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. 

Support for STEAM school programs has been provided by the Duke Energy Foundation.
