School & Teacher Programs

MF School and Teacher Programs are designed to support critical and flexible thinking and collaboration. The Mattress Factory encourages all educators and students to actively investigate the creative practice of resident artists as they experiment with new materials, take risks and communicate ideas through installation art.

Program developers use interpretive materials to emphasize and respond to the inherent interdisciplinary, process-based and participatory nature of installation art. Contact with living artists and exposure to the artistic process allows students and teachers to further investigate creativity and the multiple applications of critical thinking. All K-12 Museum Visits and Installation Labs address State Standards in the Arts and Humanities and provide curriculum connections.
