The Giertz Education Center lends education materials to schools, libraries, and other community sites. Available materials include DVDs, hands-on kits (containing objects, background information, and lesson plans), poster prints, teacher resources, and art replicas.
The Giertz Education Center is dedicated to integrating art appreciation and art history into instruction of humanities and science at all levels, from pre-school through college.
A catalog of materials available for checkout is available online through an integrated library system called SHARE. This service allows teachers to find and to borrow KAM resources at any local library in Illinois. Search the Center collection and reserve items or complete the request form to have the staff select resources for you. All resources can be made available for pick up at the Education Center or can be delivered to your local library.
