College and University

Make the San Jose Museum of Art part of your curriculum. As Silicon Valley’s leading institution dedicated to the art of our time, SJMA presents modern and contemporary exhibitions-- the perfect backdrop for writing assignments, research projects, and exploring the creative process.

Guided and self-guided tours are available at a discounted rate of just $70 for up to 30 students. Tour the museum on your own or customize the experience with SJMA’s professional staff. For example:

  • An arts writing class meets the director of education to discuss writing for museum audiences.
  •  Curatorial studies students meet with our curators and tour behind the scenes
  •  Education students explore the constructivist nature of learning in art museums with SJMA’s gallery teachers.
  • Add a hands-on art-making activity with our 2-Part Art for Adults.

Call the education department at 408.291.5393 to plan your group’s custom experience.

SJMA’s Creative Minds series features artists’ talks and cross-disciplinary perspectives: the perfect opportunity for critiques and writing projects. Discounted group tickets for these and other public programs are available with advance booking. Check our calendar of events for a complete schedule.
