Art in Your Community

Let’s make art together! The Fine Arts Museums’ Department of Education offers free community art making and art talks for adults, children, and families.

The department’s Museum Ambassadors program trains local teens to facilitate art projects in San Francisco community centers, public libraries, cultural centers, schools, camps, and senior centers. Children ages 6–12 and their caregivers or group leaders are invited to schedule a visit as well. We accommodate up to 30 participants and provide all materials. This summer, inspired by our on-site de Youngsters Studio, we will explore the concepts of color, composition, and texture to create original works of art.

Community visits take place July through August 2019. Reservation requests are accepted and scheduled on a rolling basis until full. See more information and reserve a visit.
