Museum Forum for Teachers

The Museum Forum for Teachers is an immersive summer program for secondary educators presented by The Warehouse, Nasher Sculpture Center, Dallas Museum of Art, Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, and Kimbell Art Museum. Please check back in spring 2021 for information about upcoming events.

Teacher In-Services

The Dallas Museum of Art Education Department offers in-service training for K–12 teachers. In-services typically offer an overview of teaching resources offered by the DMA, gallery visits, and hands-on activities. These can be scheduled throughout the academic year, and must be scheduled at least one month in advance to allow for planning.

For groups of 20 or fewer, the cost is a flat fee of $100. For groups of 21 or more, the cost is a flat fee of $150. For more information, or to schedule an in-service, email schoolprograms@DMA.org or call 214-922-1842.

Gallery Guides

The DMA is a big museum, so start your visit with a bite-sized tour. Download a PDF for you to print, review, and bring with you to the DMA. Topics range from a focus on a specific area of the collection or a particular color to kid-friendly topics like superheroes.
