Carlos School Programs

school group at the Carlos MuseumStudents from the Carlos Museum's docent-led school group tour admire the coffin of Iawttayesheret, ca. 760-656 BCE, in the world-renowned Egyptian art galleries.

Emory's Michael C. Carlos Museum provides many and diverse opportunities for K-12 students and teachers to explore the collections and exhibitions.

Over 18,000 students participate in experiential tours of the Museum each year. Designed to meet Georgia Performance Standards in many areas of the curriculum, tours of the Museum's collections and exhibitions introduce students to the stories of civilization through the study of works of art. The intimate galleries of the Carlos provide an ideal learning environment, perfectly suited to small-group discussion, facilitated by knowledgeable and personable docents.

Another 8,000 students experience the Carlos in their classrooms through the Museum's Discovery and Art Odyssey outreach programs.

Workshops and PLU courses for K-12 teachers offer educators unique opportunities to learn from Museum curators and Emory faculty from across the university.

Elementary and Middle School children can explore works of art in the collection and the cultures that created them through the Museum's award-winning interactive website, Odyssey Online.
