School & Teacher Programs

An Exciting Time of Change: Building a Better Museum

SBMA is in the midst of a renovation that will expand our galleries and public space, enabling us to showcase more of our permanent collection and welcome more visitors, as well as improve services and offer enhanced education spaces for school groups, families, and teachers. During this process selected galleries may be closed intermittently, so we are offering several new ways to see more art in alternate spaces. We are also expanding our online resources, so check our website for updates. We’ll continue to offer special programs and events for educators while our building is transformed.

Program Brochures


For those outside of the SB School District busing stipends are available
