958 Art Packets went out to Learning To See students this school year!
MANY THANKS to our donors and volunteers!
We are grateful for you.

Each packet included supplies and a step-by-step handout for 5 different LTS lessons. Of course, each lesson is inspired by one of our FOTM Documented Artists, including Christine Brennen, Gayel Childress, Robert Engel, Porfirio Gutierrez, Tom Jenkins, Karen Kitchel, Gary Lang, Christine Morla, Dennis Oppenheim, RTK Studios, Frank Romero, Hiroko Yoshimoto.
Our dear volunteers organized and filled the packets, toughing it out masked, distanced and finally, YAY!, double-vaccinated! Packets were then delivered to each school for parent pickup.
All classes were taught on Zoom.
Learning To See has been adapted for comprehensive online learning! We utilize Zoom (& other video platforms) and have webpages to support each lesson. Art supply packets are provided for each student.
Our standard 8-week in-the-classroom residency is $550 (including instructor and supplies).
You can “Adopt A Classroom” for $550.00. Click HERE to donate.
Four week and single lessons are also available. Our lessons are cross-curricular and support the California content standards. Many of them can be tailored and grouped to work with a particular unit of study, i.e. zoology, social studies, history, language arts, sciences, etc. They are adaptable to a wide range of grade levels from elementary through secondary grades and beyond, including community groups and programs. Programs are supported in a variety of ways, including school and PTA funds, grants, or personal donations from an individual or group of parents/grandparents.
Our program is taught by professional artists who have extensive educational experience. We feel that this criterion helps to guide the student with a deeper understanding of the art making process.
