    Art Learning Lab is a dedicated exhibition space inspired by Sowing Creativity, the Museum’s award-winning STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) education program. Featuring a diverse selection of work from the permanent collection, the Art Learning Lab reveals how artists engage cross-disciplinary concepts in their approach to art-making.

    Through interactive play and experimentation, visitors are encouraged to draw their own connections between individual creative exploration and the ideas, tools, and techniques used in the artwork on display.


    Education programs at the San José Museum of Art are made possible by lead support from California Arts Council; major support from Sally Lucas and the Leo M. Shortino Family Foundation; generous support from the Koret Foundation, KPMG, Worth and Andy Ludwick, SVCreates in partnership with Santa Clara County, Tech CU, and Daphne and Stuart Wells; additional support from the City of San Jose, Lucia Cha, and Priscilla Chou; and significant endowment support from the William Randolph Hearst Foundation.
