As the 2020-2021 school year in California begins with distanced learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we remain grateful and inspired by the work you have been doing to guarantee that your students have access to continued learning. While SBMA will not be holding in-person school tours for the remainder of 2020, we have been working hard to develop online resources to continue engaging students with art.
We are also dedicated to making SBMA's school programs more relevant, accessible and culturally responsive. In the coming months, we will be sharing new lesson plans and virtual field trips that increase students' awareness of a range of topics including social justice, mindfulness, and ethnic studies.
Thank you for all that you do. We look forward to welcoming you back to SBMA sometime soon.
