Educator Resources

At Touchstones Nelson: Museum of Art and History, we are hopeful that students and educators have settled into a learning rhythm in spite of the challenges that continue to present themselves. Our School Programs are always evolving to suit the needs of educators, respond to social, economic and political changes, and integrate the latest Gallery exhibitions.

Check back often for new additions to our Teacher Guide database, and please contact with questions, comments and suggestions.
