|Free arts education for your classroom |
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.
