Let's Look at Art is a volunteer outreach program of the San Jose Museum of Art. Our mission is to provide interactive visual arts education to K-12 students.

  • We strive to educate students in the formal elements of art appreciation while presenting significant artists of historic importance. 

  • We believe that learning to appreciate art will not only raise awareness of cultural and ethnic diversity but will foster an environment that builds self-esteem and promotes creativity in the student. 

  • We realize that the Let’s Look at Art program is the first exposure many students will have to fine art, and it is our goal to make the experience fun and exciting. 

  • We encourage students to expand their horizons by participating in the many art education programs that the San Jose Museum of Art has to offer.

Since 1972, we have brought our arts education program to nearly 1 million students across Santa Clara County. During the pandemic, we are bringing our program to students virtually.
