Teaching Fellows

The Teaching Fellows Program prepares highly motivated undergraduate art history majors to lead Guided School Visits for schoolchildren in grades 5 through 12. This new initiative begins with one year of intensive training, followed by a second year of teaching in the galleries. During the first year, Teaching Fellows will meet twice a month on Fridays for training sessions, which will focus on the Frick’s permanent collection and museum pedagogy. Additionally, Teaching Fellows will conduct independent research at the Frick Art Reference Library, practice dialogical teaching, shadow experienced Museum Guides on weekday mornings, attend after-hours Education programs, and go on occasional field trips to neighboring museums. Beyond receiving an introduction to museum education and a teaching practicum, Teaching Fellows will receive compensation in recognition of their commitment to gallery teaching. This program is generously underwritten by General Growth Partners.
