The Art Museum of Los Gatos (Grades K-5)

4 Tait Avenue, Los Gatos, CA

The Museum Explorer! program allows children to examine, experience and understand artwork in an intimate setting. Children’s imaginations are unlocked via interactive storytelling, allowing them to enjoy and interpret art on a deeper level. The Museums of Los Gatos is certified as a Common-Core provider by the Santa Clara County Office of Education and Silicon Valley Creates.

Explore! The Art Museum

There is a difference between looking at art and seeing art. Master Storyteller, Jerry Falek, will encourage students to look deeply at the artwork in the exhibition and guide them to create their own story. After touring the museum, students will participate in an art appreciation lesson and create their own original work of art related to the themes of the exhibit.
