Education Resources

Women & Their Work believes contemporary art education is a valuable resource that should be made accessible to audiences of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities. Women & Their Work’s exhibitions, programs, performances, and tours are free and open to the public. To aid interpretation of exhibitions featured in the galleries, the artwork is accompanied by critical essays written by art and culture professionals, video interviews with each artist speaking to the themes and methods behind her work, and art education lesson plans designed to complement each exhibition. Learn more on our education page.

Learning Through the Arts

Learning through the Arts (LTA) was a community-based partnership between Women & Their Work, Applied Materials, The University of Texas at Austin and the Manor Independent School District. LTA was a unique professional development program that sought to provide teachers with tools to use art techniques to teach core curricular subjects.  Teachers collaborated with five teaching artists throughout the school year to integrate the arts into their classroom.  Workshops on integrating the arts connect teachers and teaching artists to new ways of creating an exciting and active classroom.
