Children in class

School and Educator Services

It is because of teachers that many children take a first step in a lifelong enjoyment of art — and the Nelson-Atkins is devoted to assisting educators in this endeavor.

We support youth-serving professionals with a full range of development opportunities, curriculum consultations and a library of circulating materials — all in the Educator Resource Center. For students, there are tours and art-making workshops that extend the classroom experience to the place where art thrives in our city—The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art.

World War I and the Rise of Modernism
The museum is offering a teacher-led tour with student guides for this exhibit. The tour encourages students to investigate the emergence of Modernism at the turn of the 20th century and the impact of World War I on this artistic movement. The collaborative discussion of works in this exhibit plus artist biographies, music and literature from the period before, during and after the Great War reveal artistic responses to a culture in transition and a war that changed the world forever.
