Hi! Welcome to 220B, home to the Telfair Museums’ Education Department.

If you are viewing this you just may be an educator, a student, a parent, an artist, some or all of the above, or a person who happens to be interested in creativity, education or museums. We will be using this little blog to bring you scoops on upcoming programs at the Telfair Museums, educational resources and links related to Telfair exhibitions and programs, musings on art, art education and creativity, and even occasional artsy silliness.

First of all – who are these people? At this time your bloggers include:
