Education

SJMA is the largest provider of arts education in Santa Clara County. Our education programs help school children, families, and adults investigate the art of our time and the creative process in both lively and contemplative ways. Our new online content has something for everyone, from art-making activities, to lesson plans, talks, and outreach into the area's schools.
