Teaching with Collections

The Center welcomes educators who wish to use the collections for teaching, whether it is a kindergarten class or a group of graduate students.

Gallery Tours

The Education department offers docent-led tours of the collections and classes tailored to visitors with special needs. For more information please see Tours.

Independent Visits

You are welcome to bring your class to the galleries without an organized tour, but we ask that you please contact the Education department prior to your visit to schedule a time as the galleries can only accommodate a limited number of groups on a given day.

Teaching in the Study Room

The Study Room is also used for teaching with works from the Center’s Prints & Drawings and Rare Books & Manuscripts collections. Staff members are available for advice on planning classes. Please note that teaching in the Study Room is by prior appointment only (two weeks in advance) and class sizes are limited to fifteen students.

For further information, please contact the Study Room (ycba.studyroom@yale.edu | +1 203 432 2840).
