Teachers

Professional Development workshops at the Museum of Arts and Design complement and expand upon educators’ existing knowledge of contemporary art, craft, and design.

MAD is an accredited Continuing Teacher and Leader Education (CTLE) sponsor with the New York State Department of Education.

Led by artists, curators, and museum educators, MAD’s professional development workshops enable K-12 educators to discover creative ways of interpreting and presenting fundamental concepts in all subject areas, using art, craft, and design as a bridge for comprehension. 

Workshops take place during NYC Department of Education district-wide professional development days, with additional professional development opportunities online and onsite throughout the year. MAD also offers custom designed workshops for individual schools or districts.

Teachers' Advisory Committee

The Teacher Advisory Committee (TAC) is a select group of K-12 educators who meet during the academic year to foster collaboration among schools and the Museum, as well as to review museum education programs and resources. TAC is comprised of NYC public and independent school teachers representing various grades and subject areas.

Teacher programs are supported by the William Randolph Hearst Endowment Fund for Education and Outreach Programs, and public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
