Education Resources

Lesson plans in this interdisciplinary curriculum engage K–12 students in the subject areas of English language arts, social studies, mathematics, and science using artworks from our collection as inspiration. For more information, check out all Education Resources.

Professional Development

CMOA organizes professional development opportunities for educators throughout the year. Join educators from around the city in programs designed to bolster teaching practices.

  • Empowered Educators Series: Join educators, artists, field professionals, and museum staff as we deepen our knowledge and understanding of topics critical to our lives as informed citizens. Upcoming events in the series will take place on January 16, February 13, March 19, and April 9. See calendar of events for educators for current offerings.

  • Pennsylvania Teachers & Act 48: Pennsylvania teachers are required to accrue 180 hours of professional development every five years. Teachers can earn Act 48 activity hours for participating in Carnegie Museum of Art’s various workshops, classes, lectures, and public programs. Please see individual events for eligibility.

Opportunities For Your Students

There are two types of school group visits: Guided School Group Tours and Guided School Group Workshops. School visits take place entirely in the museum galleries where students engage with relevant thematic content and build learning skills such as observation, interpretation, and inference-making.
