The Spotlight Artist programming is the Bay Area Discovery Museum’s unique way of incorporating professional artists into our arts programming. Using elements from the artist’s techniques, materials, and/or concepts, our young visitors can begin to build connections to the art world. These projects run every day on our Studio 5 project table and twice weekly in Art Lab. 

Art Lab is a process-oriented workshop especially designed to give children and their caregivers the opportunity to delve one step further and explore deeper the materials, processes, and/or ideas of the chosen artist of the month.
