~Museums List~

Just looking at the list of the San Francisco Museums for kids, we found a number of museums that offer hands on workshops. These workshops would be great for school assembly trips and family outings. For example, the San Francisco Bay Area base Museum of Craft and Design offers our children’s entertainment programs and workshops that focus on learning about artistic techniques and always include an opportunity for kids to explore their creativity hands-on in a supervised environment. The San Francisco Center for the Book offers more than 300 workshops each year. The San Francisco Children’s Art Center offers birthday party entertainment packages. Their activities include painting, sculpture, printmaking, playdough, collage, shrink-art, and more! Teachers guide children in the use of the materials and keep the children engaged, without imposing prescribed art “products.” Explore more and share…
