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)

These workshops start with a story reading, then bring it to life through a variety of expressive art activities based on an artist in focus, led by a LACMA Teaching Artist. Stories and featured artists are based on monthly themes.

Creative Careers: Museums and the Arts (for Kids & Teens)

Ever wanted to learn about the art-related careers that exist in creative places like museums? These programs feature LACMA staff, who will discuss what they do and the journey they took to get there, opening viewers’ minds to the many possibilities for the future.
