Resources for Educators
The goal of our Education Program is to share a variety of helpful arts and sustainability resources with teachers. Here are some helpful resources for educators:
* New! We are pleased to announce our partnership with Washed Ashore, an environmental sustainability and arts integration nonprofit based in Oregon. Washed Ashore Education Director Patrick Chandler will be providing a workshop for K-5 teachers on Friday, October 20, 2017 from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Art Explorium.

- Professional Development opportunities for teachers.
We offer a fun, FREE annual Creative Reuse Open House for Educators. Educators get some new creative reuse project ideas to take back to the classroom, meet folks from arts and environmental organizations, and receive useful supplies for the classroom. This event takes place each year on a Saturday in July. Educators are also welcome to bring their children to participate in art activities during the Open House. Our Creative Reuse Open House is sponsored by the Johnson Ohana Charitable Foundation, founded by Jack and Kim Johnson to support environmental, art, and music education now and into the future.
