About the virtual education center
The Mel and Leta Ramos Family Virtual Education Center at the Crocker Art Museum is a comprehensive resource for teachers, parents, homeschoolers, and other educators looking to integrate art into their classroom, home, or community.
About the Crocker Art Museum
Through the Education Center, we provide lesson plans, art education coaching, curriculum reviews, professional development, and more, which all work in conjunction with school and teacher programs at the Crocker.
WHO WE SERVE
Students deserve an adventure to remember, and the Crocker’s school and teacher programs feature a full range of rich experiences designed to spark creativity and critical thinking. And don’t forget, the Crocker is the perfect place for teachers to expand their practices, sharpen their skills, network, and enjoy professional development. As a leading provider of arts education in the greater Sacramento area, the Crocker is here for teachers and students of all grade levels. We offer programs and resources aligned with the California Content Standards both in the visual arts and across curricula, which we know is crucial for the successful art integration in the classroom, as well as the participation of teachers and students.

Commitment to DEAI
The Crocker Art Museum is committed to advancing diversity, equity, accessibility, and inclusion (DEAI). We recognize and endeavor to address the historical and complex circumstances of biases and inequities that have impacted society and the Crocker. Through art, we work together as staff, Board, and volunteers to build meaningful relationships with the community we serve, including our members and visitors.
To that end, the artists and stories represented in our collection, exhibitions, publications, and programming must reflect the diversity of the world we live in. We actively and intentionally make decisions and align our resources to provide equitable access to all. Our responsibility is to provide a space that allows for inclusivity and belonging, where everyone thrives and feels valued, respected, and able to bring their whole self. Through a transparent and actionable commitment, we hope to foster new perspectives and innovation that will continue to push the definition of excellence by which we measure ourselves. We support and empower all those around us to do the same.
We acknowledge that our actions require regular examination to cultivate a deeper awareness, appreciation, and understanding of the ever-evolving topic of DEAI.
