The Emerson believes that creative self-expression enriches people’s lives and our community. Working artists-teachers, including those who exhibit work in the Emerson’s contemporary art galleries, teach our classes and workshops. These are exhibit-inspired, community-based interdisciplinary explorations of painting, drawing, sculpture, mixed media, printmaking, ceramics, and new genre.

Many Emerson tenants also teach out of their studios.

Our exhibit-related educational programing offers opportunities for all ages. The Schools in the Gallery Program is a FREE education outreach program available to school-aged children. We provide docent-led tours of current exhibits followed by an optional hands-on art activity that uses techniques and media similar to those employed by the artist.

Tours are available to university, homeschool, public and private groups of all ages.

The Emerson also offers classes, workshops and lectures for all ages relating to current exhibits. Please check our exhibit and education schedules for more information.
