The education and outreach department at the South Bend Museum of Art strives to create and maintain an accessible and welcoming space for all. We offer guided tours, school programming, special youth and community centered exhibition opportunities, outreach programming, an annual student-faculty exhibition, and classes in our materials-based facilities throughout the year. We create opportunities that provide a path to building community and individual agency through creativity. 

For more than 90 years, The Scholastic Art & Writing Award program has sought to encourage, foster, and reward creativity in our nation’s classrooms and to confer recognition on emerging talent.
