Abstract: Almost all public art galleries, large and small, plan for the use of the gallery by school classes. In this manner, the gallery takes on the role of art educator, a role shared with most elementary school teachers. This shared responsibility implies a partnership between gallery educators and teachers, whereby each partner shares expertise and resources with the other. In this case study two workshop packages, including pre-visit and in-gallery materials, for grades three through six, were developed and evaluated. It became evident that while gallery programs can be designed to provide a good experience for children as well as professional development for teachers, there may be a lack of communication between galleries and schools. This impedes the potential success of gallery based art educational programs.
