Welcome Teachers!

The Santa Paula Art Museum's ArtSPARK school tour program ignites students' imaginations and opens the door to arts education and creative exploration. Museum Educators lead collaborative discussions, idea exchanges, and questioning strategies to encourage critical thinking, interpretation, and verbalization skills. Students will tour the Museum's current exhibitions, and participate in a fun and engaging hands-on art project to reinforce exhibit themes.

The ArtSPARK school tour program is offered at no cost to schools. To request a school tour, please download the ArtSPARK school tour registration brochure below and return it by email, or regular mail. Alternatively, you may fill out the online registration form below. Once your information has been received, a Museum Educator will contact you to confirm the date and details of your tour.

ArtSPARK is sponsored by The Allan Atmore Family, Bank of the Sierra, and The Paul and Anne Leavens Family Fund.
