ARTCORE is a project based learning program that teaches California state standards in literature, math, science, and history through the visual arts and the Museum's Permanent Collection. This weeklong program is taught in the Museum Art School, or if this is not possible, at the student's classroom for 2.5 hours a day, with a follow-up visit to the Museum after the completed week.
Funding for this program is generously provided by Target Community Relations.
