We partner with social service and other organizations that share our passion for providing educational experiences with art. Through pARTners in Creativity, we host group visits for children and families from lower socioeconomic backgrounds, with special needs or other life challenges. We have worked with numerous organizations over recent years, including: Braille Institute, Community ConNext, Migrant Education, Monarch School, Ronald McDonald House Charities, San Diego Center for Children, SDYS Foster Care, Support the Enlisted Project (STEP), USO San Diego, Vista Hills, Voices for Children and Words Alive. Voices for Children’s CASAs and their case foster children are also offered free visits.
During the Museum’s temporary closure, we are providing hundreds of learning art kits with lesson plans being sent to these organizations. Click here to learn more about the enhanced DIY blogs designed for our pARTners in Creativity program groups.
