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.
