Teachers' Professional Development
Teachers' Professional Development at the Museum of Arts and Design is aimed at complementing educators' existing knowledge of contemporary art, craft, and design. Teachers’ Professional Development seminars and participatory workshops are led by artists, curators, museum educators, and other education professionals. They are designed to help K-12 educators discover creative ways of interpreting and presenting fundamental concepts in all subjects areas, using art, craft, and design as a bridge for comprehension.
Teachers' Advisory Committee
Teachers' Advisory Committee (TAC) is a select group of K-12 educators who meet during the school year to foster collaboration and learning among schools and museums. TAC is comprised of museum educators and public and private school teachers from New York City, who teach various grade levels and subjects, including art, English, foreign language, history/social studies, math, science, special education, and technology.
