The Contemporary Austin provides a number of opportunities for teachers to engage with our exhibitions and the museum and to earn professional development credit.
Teacher Workshops provide interactive training and resource materials for teachers from all subject areas and grade levels. Austin ISD, Round Rock ISD, and surrounding district teachers who attend a Teacher Workshop may receive one transportation reimbursement and one half-day substitute reimbursement for attending each workshop. Earn Continuing Professional Education credits (CPEs), receive teacher lesson plans, engage in hands-on activities, learn about booking docent-led tours, and discuss strategies for incorporating contemporary artists and their works into your classroom.
