Bio

We host workshops, museum visits, and hands-on art projects. Students have access to art objects and materials and the tools for thinking critically about their meanings. Through observation, inquiry, and interpretation, students build across subject areas, meeting state standards in visual arts, language arts, and social sciences. Trips range from a one-time guided tour of an area of the collection to a three-part program including class prep, guided tour, and art project.

Over the last three decades, our school program has introduced the art form of Shadow Theatre to numerous students around the SF Bay Area and beyond. Shadow Theatre is traditionally a community-building art form, providing the public with a place to connect with mythology, history, families and neighbors. It is also a collaborative, manual venture, where all involved have their hands on every aspect of the creative process, and it has proven to be a powerful teaching tool for young minds.
