The Giertz Education Center lends education materials to schools, libraries, and other community sites. Available materials include videos, teacher manuals and touch kits (containing images, background information, and lesson plans), art prints, 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 automated service called SHARE.
