In Santa Barbara, art is common ground on which we enrich and nurture an energetic, caring, and diverse community. Our education programs—accessible to everyone—offer a variety of programs with a clear set of ideals: give individuals access to the Museum's collections and resources, ignite imagination and spur learning through careful instruction, and build community connections through empathetic growth and cultural exchange. Through these efforts, we hope to touch people's lives, offer a path to learning about our local community and larger world, and—on the best of days—help people learn more about themselves.
