Designed for grades K–6, this program brings Museum Guides to the classroom to lead a hands-on art activity exploring a featured artist and artwork from the museum’s collection. During each session, Museum Guides use posters or projected images to introduce students to works from SFMOMA’s collection, along with a book carefully selected to align with the featured artist or a video from the series The Country Dog Gentlemen Travel to Extraordinary Worlds. Art Express aims to build on classroom learning: it addresses ELA Common Core State Standards, including critical-thinking and analytical skills, while developing content knowledge. The program is free of charge.
Art Express is generously supported by Deborah and Kenneth Novack.
