dc.description.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. en
