Montalvo Arts Center

Montalvo Arts Center

Montalvo Arts Center’s mission is to engage the public in the creative process, acting as a catalyst for exploring the arts, unleashing creativity, and advancing different cultural and cross-cultural perspectives. We achieve our mission by creating and presenting arts of all types, nurturing artists, and using our historic property in innovative ways.

Located in Silicon Valley’s Saratoga Hills, the Montalvo grounds include a 1912 Mediterranean-style Villa, its formal gardens, and two-acre Great Lawn; the historic Claire Loftus Carriage House Theatre and the Lilian Fontaine Garden Theatre; and 175 acres of trails through redwood trees. Below the Villa and across the creek are hidden ten free-standing live/work studios and the Commons of the Sally and Don Lucas Artists Residency Program (LAP), which hosts over 100 artists each year from diverse backgrounds across the nation and the world. The LAP is the third-oldest artist residency program in the United States.

Three special assets–our extraordinary physical environment and grounds, a rich diversity of multigenerational visitors, and artistically excellent programs–combine to make Montalvo a unique multidisciplinary arts organization that has become a place for people of all ages and all walks of life to engage in meaningful, accessible, and inspiring arts experiences.

Identity Development Through Art

Program description

This hands-on workshop provides teachers with an integrated learning lesson plan for middle and high school students. The lesson is designed to help students uncover their personal values to discover how they contribute to their identity. A series of social-emotional learning (SEL) activities lay the foundation for students to create vision board collages that represent their evolving aspirations as they transition into young adulthood. The final component allows students to reflect upon the process, crafting artist statements that illustrate moments of personal growth, awareness, confidence, and creativity. Teachers participating in this workshop will make their own vision/values board collage and discuss implications for the classroom.
