Education Programs


As public funding for school art programs shrink, the Claremont Museum of Art fills an important role in providing art education to Claremont youth through our education programs: Project ARTstART and ARTStation.

Project ArtstARTProject ARTstART trains high school students to teach museum-based arts appreciation to elementary school students. The program, now in its eighth year, involves eight college mentors and 70 high school students serving seven Claremont elementary schools.

ARTStationARTStation provides monthly art activities at the Museum and at annual community festivals. Find ARTStation, a place for children to experience art and engage with local culture, at the museum on the first Sunday of the every month and at annual community festivals. High school students in CMA’s Project ARTstART lead visitors in an art activity related to the current exhibition. ARTStation is sponsored by Wheeler Steffen Sotheby’s International Realty and Broadview Mortgage.
