Make the Chrysler your Classroom
With plans for virtual school in motion, many teachers have expressed concern about having appropriate spaces to deliver instruction from this fall. Some teachers have also expressed lower student engagement during virtual instruction.
Teachers spend a significant amount of time, and often their own resources, creating inspirational, educational spaces that help facilitate instruction. Considering that missing element, the Chrysler Museum will open the galleries to provide an alternative to teaching from home. This program aims to give teachers a workspace along with additional teaching tools and ways to engage students.
The galleries are open by appointment to K-12 public school teachers in Hampton Roads on Mondays when the Museum is closed. Submit your request below.
Once your appointment is confirmed, Chrysler Museum staff will provide detailed instructions on how to enter the building. Due to security regulations in the building, education staff is required to be in the same gallery while you’re teaching. We will provide a desk, chair, and materials to elevate your laptop or tablet. A whiteboard and access to electricity are available upon request.
All materials are fully sanitized between uses, and masks are required when in other parts of the building. Masks are not required to be worn while actively teaching as staff will be at a safe distance.
Additionally, teachers can request education staff or a docent lead their students through a guided looking activity or provide some information about the artwork.
