Education at The Brooks

We strive to make art accessible to the whole community, in and outside the museum.

At the Brooks, we believe art is a unifying force. We see how art inspires creativity, dialogue, and communal spirit. That is why we strive to make art accessible to the whole community, in and outside the museum.



We need you to join our volunteer team of fun, inquisitive, and enthusiastic docents. All you need is a love of art, a commitment to volunteering, and a desire to learn. New docent training program begins this fall!


Mid-South Scholastic Art Awards

The Mid-South Scholastic Art Awards is an annual juried student art exhibition sponsored by the Brooks Museum League and Pinnacle Financial Partners, with support from Derek Fordjour and the family of Marcia Bicks.



School tours are designed to engage students in critical thinking about art, and to support students to develop visual literacy skills. Students of all ages are invited to explore the rich collection of the Brooks Museum on a tour.
