ArtSPARK School Tour Program
ArtSPARK ignites students' imaginations and opens the door to arts education and creative exploration. Students tour the Museum’s exhibits while Museum Educators lead collaborative discussions, idea exchanges, and questioning strategies to encourage critical thinking, interpretation, and verbalization skills. The tour is followed by a fun and engaging hands-on art project. ArtSPARK is free for schools.
Free Family Days
The Santa Paula Art Museum hosts Free Family Day events quarterly throughout the year. This is an opportunity for artists of all ages to come together to experience the Museum through self-guided tours, art workshops, and performances.
The Museum partners with local community organizations and schools to bring the museum experience into the community and increase arts access to local youth through traveling visual art workshops. Workshops are free and vary depending on the needs of our partners. If you are interested in having an art workshop at your site, please contact Museum Educator Michelle Glass.
Teen Open Studio
Teens look closely at art, create works of art, interact with practicing artists, and experience the Museum behind the scenes. Teen workshops are creative "laboratories," a place for experimentation and the construction of cultural knowledge through shared experience. Workshops are free and led by local artist Silvia Huerta. For more information, please contact Museum Educator Michelle Glass.
