PAFA’s programs for students and teachers leverage the strengths of our collections and special exhibitions in combination with important social themes and key curriculum standards. 

School Group visits use hands-on gallery activities to teach visiting students to think, share, question, and collaborate, emphasizing classroom skills that align with the Common Core Curriculum. Choose from tour topics that we offer year-round or let us know what you are working on and we’ll help you plan the best visit.
Teacher Services include workshops, Act 48 credit, continuing education classes, pre-vist packets and much more. Special exhibitions also include evening events for teachers to preview the content before planning a field trip.
