Montalvo’s arts and education programs grow out of our institutional commitment to provide quality learning experiences for all ages and skill levels. As a multidisciplinary arts center, we offer opportunities to explore the visual arts, music, theatre, poetry and spoken word, dance, design, digital arts, culinary arts, botanical arts, and more.

Through cross-discipline arts-centered practice and a collaborative approach, we are working to shape the educational landscape of Silicon Valley. Our belief is that the arts foster greater cognitive, social, and emotional capacity—and build engaged citizenship among our greater community. 

Leveraging our stunning grounds, on-site studios, the classrooms of Santa Clara County, and our many institutional partners, we present a broad range of relevant, responsive, and compelling offerings that celebrate the creative spirit, engage the imagination, and develop the artist in all of us.
