The University Collections of Art and History (UCAH) at Washington and Lee University advances learning through direct engagement with collections, stimulates appreciation of global cultures, and inspires leadership in the arts and sciences. UCAH encompasses Lee Chapel and Museum, home of Washington-Custis-Lee family artifacts and the burial site of Robert E. Lee. Within walking distance from Lee Chapel is the Reeves Center, a ceramics and art gallery. Behind the Reeves Center, visitors can explore changing exhibits in Watson Pavilion. As an academic entity, we continually promote education among our sites. Each year UCAH provides an on-site teacher workshop open to teachers of all grade levels. While the focus of our workshop shifts each year, workshops typically include a tour of sites, resource packets with background information and activities for interdisciplinary learning. The workshop is free of charge and includes a boxed lunch. Workshops are suitable for recertification points. Pre-registration is required.
