The Long Beach Museum of Art enriches lives and promotes understanding by bringing people together to celebrate the arts.
The Museum’s Education Department works to promote life-long learning that nourishes creativity and fosters self-expression. Engaging our diverse communities with original works of art, artistic processes, and art-making allows the museum to obtain their goals. In addition to directly promoting skills and understanding of the visual arts, the Museum recognizes the potential of arts education to serve as a means of academic advancement and personal and social development. To that end, the Museum offers a wide range of programs for children, adults, teachers, and families. These programs take place at the Museum, in the Long Beach schools, and throughout the community.
In addition, before each major exhibition, the Museum staff develops a variety of educational activities, including art making workshops, artist demonstrations, expert discussions, and tours that explore the exhibition artworks, featured artists, and their artistic process.
