 Special Programs, Course Notes and Community Partnerships
The Museum Ambassador Program:

Since 1982 the Fine Arts Museums have been offering jobs to San Francisco high school students and preparing them to become peer teachers in their communities. In December 2004, The Ambassador Program won the “Coming Up Taller” award, the nation’s highest honor for after school and out-of-school programs that use arts and humanities to enrich the lives of children. Lincoln High School has had a Museum Ambassador Team every year since 1998. If you are interested, speak to the sponsor, Ms. Melander

Young Artist At Work

A paid, multi-disciplinary arts, activism, and job training after-school program for SF public high school teens from diverse backgrounds at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. Lincoln High School has participated in Young Artists since 2004. If you are interested speak to Ms. Schell.

EAA: Engineers Alliance for the Arts.

Local structural engineers work with Art 2 students each year, providing an opportunity for students to experience and understand the integration of art, math and science that takes place in engineering. As part of the project, students work in teams to create model bridges for a final competition. See Ms. Melander for details.

AIA Competition

Students in Advanced Art and Architecture compete with other Bay area teens in an architectural design and building project.

Art Speak

The Asian Art Museum’s Art Speak is for high school students who are interested in art, enjoy exploring new and different ideas; are self-motivated and independent but work well with others. Students work with museum staff, artists and other professionals. See Ms. Schell for details.
