The Allen Memorial Art Museum offers educational resources for Oberlin College faculty and students as well as other colleges and universities, K-12 teachers and classes, families and lifelong learners.
Direct experience with original works of art is at the core of the AMAM’s mission, and the museum’s holdings present an exceptional resource for teaching, learning, and research, both for Oberlin College students and the public.
Interactive, informative guided tours, private sessions in our Wolfgang Stechow Print Study Room, Community Days, teen workshops, special exhibitions, gallery talks, and lectures all offer unique ways to explore the AMAM's collections and exhibitions.
Each year, the AMAM welcomes over 2,000 schoolchildren from Oberlin City Schools and the surrounding region for tours of the museum that connect with their classroom studies. Hundreds of adults also take docent-led tours of the galleries, and participate in our many public programs.
Each semester, more than 2,000 Oberlin College students visit in conjunction with 100 or more class visits to the museum and the Print Study Room from almost all College departments.
Using information on programs organized by the AMAM's Education and Academic Programs offices that took place during 2013 and early 2014, the Association of Art Museum Directors recently produced maps that visually represent the extent of our outreach activities in northeast Ohio, Lorain County, Ohio’s 4th Congressional District, and the city of Oberlin.
