Creative Virtual Programs with LACMA

We’ve partnered with Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) to bring virtual arts programs to our communities, featuring LACMA Teaching Artists and staff.

Creative Storytelling (for Kids)

Watch these workshops that pair an art piece in the LACMA collection with a picture book. The artwork and book are then brought to life through a variety of expressive art activities based on an artist in focus and a theme, lead by a LACMA Teaching Artist.
