K-12 Students & Teachers

K-12 classes from Chapel Hill and across the region come to the Ackland for lively learning experiences with original works of art.

Looking closely, thinking carefully, and responding creatively to art from around the world stimulates new ways of thinking for teachers and students alike, in addition to making meaningful connections with the school curriculum.

Currently, we are not scheduling tours for K-12 student groups. We are developing thematic resources for asynchronous learning, which include interactive videos, downloadable handouts, and web resources for a deeper dive into selected topics.
