Educator Professional Development

Our professional development offerings seek to provide a range of opportunities for educators to learn, be inspired, relax, and engage with Newfields. Current and upcoming educator events designed to nourish educators' personal learning as well as provide strategies for use in the classroom and beyond.

Professional Growth Plan (PGP) Points Available

Newfields offers credit for educators seeking opportunities to earn PGP points towards license renewal. Many of our public programs, professional development workshops, and other events are eligible for PGP points (one point for each hour of participation). For questions, please contact the Education Team


Classes at Newfields take you outside of the classroom and into the galleries or the gardens. Newfields offers classes related to the permanent collection, exhibitions, and the gardens and grounds. Find descriptions of upcoming classes on the Calendar or see below.
