Professional Development

Workshops and teacher in-service programs introduce teachers to contemporary installation art, Mattress Factory history, the artist residency program, and ongoing educational opportunities and resources. Educators work with the museum's staff to explore connections between art and multiple disciplines, with an eye toward integrating contemporary art into classroom teaching. Teachers can closely examine the creative process that artists undertake while in residence at the Mattress Factory. Workshops show teachers various ways of effectively incorporating installation art lessons into a classroom setting. Teacher workshops may take place in the museum or at your school.
