Downloadable Lesson plans
The New Children’s Museum offers lesson plans that give students the opportunity for self-expression while learning a new technique or skill. Our lesson plans are designed to be used in the classroom as part of a curriculum or to enhance a visit to the Museum.
Lesson Plans for Teens
Lesson plans designed for the Lindsay Community School are for high school students and originally part of our access programs to provide art kits and virtual art instruction in the community. The program culminated in a virtual art show that can be viewed here. This program is made possible thanks to the generous support from the California Arts Council.
Lesson Plans for Ages 4+
Inspired by the Museum’s art installations and studio spaces, these lesson plans are for children 4 and up to experience in the classroom.
Enhanced DIY Blogs for virtual learning
Our enhanced DIY blogs provide step-by-step instructions and additional learning activities of art projects for children ages 4 and up. Designed to supplement virtual/distance learning at home, these blogs were originally created for the Museum’s pARTners in Creativity access program, in which we continue to send hundreds of learning art kits to partner community organizations.
