In its mission to be a vital cultural resource to all, the North Carolina Museum of Art celebrates the creative lives of K–12 school teachers. North Carolina educators of all disciplines were invited to submit original artwork and artist statements reflecting on their creative practices and experiences with the Museum. Their art and statements show the creative versatility and thoughtfulness of educators working in our state. The NCMA is proud to support their work.

Organized by the North Carolina Museum of Art.
