Act 48 Teacher Workshops

The Trout Gallery partners with Carlisle Area School District teachers and the Pennsylvania Art Educators Association (PAEA) to offer, lectures and discussions related to our exhibitions and objects in our permanent collection. These events provide Act 48 continuing education credit to teachers, and serve as a valuable forum for exchange of ideas between teachers and the museum staff regarding the development museum-supported education in our area schools.
