The Santa Barbara Museum of Art’s ArtReach Program is an on-site, multi-visit and Museum tour program that sends SBMA Teaching Artists into school classrooms. Lessons emphasize the materials and methods artists use, and the cultural context in which their works are produced. Visual Thinking Strategies are used to connect students to original works of art in the Museum’s permanent collection or special exhibitions.
Participating schools are selected based on need and the advice of district administrators, but special programming is available upon request.
If you are interested in being considered for an Art Reach Program on your school site, please contact Education Programs at firstname.lastname@example.org.
