4 Tait Avenue, Los Gatos, CA

The Museum Explorer! program allows children to examine, experience and understand artwork on an intimate level. Through the medium of interactive storytelling, a child’s imagination is unlocked to enjoy and understand art on a deeper level. The program is designed in accordance with California State Core curriculum standards to provide instruction on the elements of art including style, media and process. It meets curriculum standards in language arts, social studies, and art.

Explore:

The 2014 Art program is inspired by the exhibition Unmasking the Stage: The Visual Artists Behind the Theater Experience. This captivating exhibition brings you the work of talented set designers, costumers, make-up and lighting artists from the Bay Area Theatre community and immerses you in their vision. Discover the processes these artists use to create a sense of place and time, real or imagined, for their theater audience. Students will tap into their imaginations to create two works of art that compliment the artistic processes explored in the exhibition: a unique story guided by Master Storyteller Jerry Falek and a hands-on art project with teaching artist Ginny Nichols.
