Educator Programs & Workshops


MCASD offers fun and engaging programs designed to support educators in their efforts to bring the arts into the classroom. 

Once a year, MCASD presents a hands-on workshop designed to help educators connect classroom goals with learning in the Museum. Taught by a leading art educator or artist, this experience expands teachers’ professional development and ability to infuse arts into their cirriculum.
Please visit Upcoming Events to register for the next Educatros Engage! program held from 9 AM-2 PM on October 1, 2016 at MCASD La Jolla.
