Are you taking your students on a museum field trip this year? Today, we are happy to present the perfect piece of media to help prepare students for a visit to an art museum.

This film project was produced in partnership with the de Young Museum and their teen ambassador program, and expertly shot and edited by the youth production company at the Bay Area Video Coalition, The Factory.

In the Bay Area, there are many arts organizations that welcome student groups and often provide free admission and tours, including the de Young Museum, the Oakland Museum of California, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Asian Art Museum, the Walt Disney Family Museum, the Cartoon Art Museum, the Asian Art Museum, the Berkeley Art Museum, the de Saisset Museum in Santa Clara, the San Jose Museum of Art, and many more.
