University Students & Faculty
As a part of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, the Weatherspoon plays a unique role in engaging learners across disciplines and research fields. Visual Literacy, or how we recognize and understand ideas conveyed through visible images, is at the core of our learning philosophy.
We invite discussion and collaboration with students and faculty through gallery classes, guided tours, or community engagement activities tailored to your curriculum objectives. Request a tour online or contact the Education department at 336-334-5770.

Falk Visiting Artist Program
The Falk Visiting Artist Program gives students at UNCG and members of the community an opportunity to meet and learn from artists who are active in the field. Each semester, a guest artist is invited by the FVA committee to present a solo exhibition at the Weatherspoon and participate in a three-day residency comprised of graduate critiques and public talks. The program has been produced collaboratively with the UNCG Department of Art since 1982. The Falk Visiting Artists for 2014-15 include Lesley Dill (Fall 2014) and Craig Hood (Spring 2015).
Foundations for Learning at UNCG
Foundations for Learning is a course designed to help first-year students make a successful transition to UNCG. The Weatherspoon offers an interactive tour for FFL classes aimed looking at art, discussing different points of view, and feeling comfortable within the museum.
