Working with the Schools

We are committed to K–12 Arts Education

Brett Dennen Professional Artist Residency

We believe the arts are essential.

A fundamental part of Sun Valley Museum of Art's mission is to work in partnership with local schools to inspire students’ curiosity and develop their skills in improvisation, self-expression and critical thinking. SVMoA's K–12 Arts Education Programs develop and strengthen these fundamental life skills helping to build engaged, curious, inspired and contributing citizens and communities.
