Teachers & Schools

The Farnsworth Art Museum seeks to bring school children of all ages into the museum to experience and enjoy our beautiful collection of artwork and special exhibitions that celebrates Maine’s role in American art. Tours are led by trained, dedicated docents and include age-appropriate activities that address Maine Learning Results and encourage students to experience the artwork at a deeper level. Travel assistance is available for those schools that have limited funding resources.
Teachers’ packets contain valuable information about major permanent exhibits, including pre- and post-visit activities, artist biographies, and color images in 35mm or digital format, and 8 x 10 posters. Available for loan.
