overview


The Tampa Museum of Art offers teachers opportunities to connect art to the classroom with a variety of events, student exhibitions, and school group tours. The Museum’s objective is to provide teachers with the means to make the Museum an extension of the classroom.

K-12 School Tours


Docent-led, k-12 tours focus on connecting students with the Museum’s collections and special exhibitions with students’ classroom curriculum and inspiring an understanding and appreciation of the visual arts.

Everyone loves a night with the Museum.

Our teacher preview events showcase our upcoming or newly opened exhibitions and allow teachers to determine how each exhibition can complement their lesson plans. All Hillsborough County public and private school teachers are invited. Attendees will learn about Museum exhibitions and collections, brainstorm curricular connections between the classroom and the Museum, and participate in discussions about virtual programs for students.
