Teacher Guides

Teacher Guides are tools to help bring art from Joslyn's collection into your classroom! Some guides help you determine which tour to schedule for your students while others provide information to help you approach works from a variety of perspectives, and elaborate on multiple larger themes. They are versatile and appropriate for a wide range of age groups. You can download Joslyn Teacher Guides from the links below.
