San Jose Museum of Art
|The San Jose Museum of Art received a grant to support of FREE fieldtrips to the museum for Title One schools for the 2019-2020 school year, and we would like to specifically extend this offer to our Let’s Look at Art and Art in the Dark teachers and schools!!|
Your students are invited to come to the museum for a FREE 2-hour art-making fieldtrip, next school year. This program is called “CAC -Two Part Art”
Two-Part Art encourages children to experience art as both viewer and maker. Children will participate in a one-hour tour, followed or preceded by a one-hour hands-on art workshop. Both tour and art activity will connect to the California State Visual Art Standards and current SJMA exhibitions. Normally this experience costs schools, $250.00 per class for up to 30 students. But with this grant funding the San Jose Museum of Art can offer this experience FREE to your students.
Registration for these CAC fieldtrip spots will open Monday, August 5, 2019.
For more information or to schedule your trip: mark your calendars to go to our website, and use our online scheduling tool.
Choose “Make an appointment for 2-Part Art.” Fieldtrip dates will be limited for this program, from September - October 30, 2019 and again from January - March 31, 2020. The museum is closed on Mondays.
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The San José Museum of Art invites your students to experience our award-winning FREE program that brings interactive art presentations into your classroom. While observing art within a group environment, students analyze, reason, and express their thoughts in a supportive environment that encourages participation and validates all ideas. To continue to foster an appreciation of art, every student will receive a FREE family pass for a follow-up visit to the Museum.
Art analysis teaches us to:
- think independently
- make sound judgments based on evidence
- understand that questions can have more than one answer
- respect other people's ideas
- witness that small differences can have large effects
- collaborate as a group
The 30–60 minute presentations are:
- For grades K–12, using art to bring all subjects alive
- Exciting processes of discovery led by a trained docent in your classroom
- Tailored by grade and subject based on educational standards
Don't miss out on this great opportunity! Click on your grade level to learn more and to request your presentation for the 2018–19 school year.
Presentations will be scheduled on a first come, first-served basis.
