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 email@example.com 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:

Dance in TK Workshop
I know young children need to move, but I'm also told they need to be 'kindergarten-ready'. How can I do both in my classroom and studio?
Early literacy and numeracy deal with relationships - and relationships can be explored creatively and playfully through movement. Learn how dance reinforces transitional kindergarten curricular objectives in developmentally-appropriate ways. No prerequisite. For all who work with young children.

Motivation & Creativity Workshop
Do you ever struggle negotiating the freedom of creativity with the "regimented" aspects of public school? Do you wish you were less controlling as a teacher? Do you want to be autonomy-supporting, but catch yourself behaving more controlling than you'd like?
This workshop explores theories & research on motivation to help teachers move beyond classroom management & behavior strategies. Explore ways to navigate your relationship with your students & curriculum in a way that is empowering to everyone. Learn to diminish stress & increase curiosity & freedom for teachers and students alike. We'll examine human motivation theories and their relationship to creativity, culturally relevant dance instruction, and social-emotional learning. Through a critical pedagogy lens, participants discuss intrinsic and extrinsic motivation and consider instructional adaptations that support student autonomy, confidence, and meaning-making. For educators & teaching artists of all disciplines.
