Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego's Extended School Partnership (ESP) is back for the 2022-2023 school year!
ESP empowers 6th- 12th-grade teachers to use the Museum as an extension of the classroom. Students and teachers engage in creative thinking and cross-disciplinary learning by integrating contemporary art into curricula and using the Museum as a learning resource!

Artmaking with students:

ESP is for all teachers across all content areas. The program will take place in-person but may switch to remote depending on changes to covid protocols.
