Designed for educators, these guides offer insights on exhibitions and teaching strategies for use in the classroom or at the museum.
Teaching with Sculpture
Tools for Teachers
Techniques for helping students to look, discuss and respond to works of art on view, facilitating a rich and meaningful gallery experience.
2D / 3D Teaching Resource
A guide designed to introduce middle and high school students to the ways in which artists in the Nasher collection use two-and three-dimensional media in their art practice.
Self-Guided Visit Cards
These cards were developed with guidance from our Teacher Advisory Board to be used while visiting the museum. We recommend printing this document double-sided, then cutting the pages into quarters. On each card, you will find information about a work of art in the museum’s collection and possible activities, which can be completed either in our galleries or in your classroom.
Remember, the museum changes often. Not all of the works on the cards will be on view when you visit.
Self-Guided Visit Worksheets
Developed with input from the Nasher Teacher Advisory Board, these worksheets are available for teachers who would like additional student exercises for self-guided visits. For use with upper elementary and secondary students.
