Teacher Resources

The Museum offers many ways for students to experience visual arts at Jesuit - inside the classroom, through participation in the annual art contest, and in conjunction with Jesuit’s student newspaper, The Roundup.

Using art from the JDM Collection is a creative and enjoyable way to reinforce classroom concepts. Museum docents work with teachers to choose artworks and hands-on projects to relate to any subject. The docent will design the program, review it with you for your approval, and then present it to your classes. We try to make every classroom experience unique. This way, students always see something new, regardless of the academic subject in which the program/tour is presented.

There is no cost for docents to develop or deliver the tours. Hands-on projects may have a materials cost; this is determined on a case-by-case basis. A limited number of hands-on projects are available.

Tour by Subject

Museum docents work with teachers to develop tours to show art from the collection that illustrates what students are learning in the classroom. At times, hands-on art projects accompany the programs.
