Bringing working artists into the museum setting, giving the community access to the artistic process

What is the Artist Studio/Demonstration Program?

This program enables museum visitors to meet artists and gives artists an opportunity to work with the public. By watching an artist work, talking with an artist, and engaging in art-making activities, visitors will learn more about various techniques and processes, thus gaining a greater understanding and appreciation for the art on view at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco.
