Catalina Ambassadors

Created in 2019 by Catalina Island Museum for Art & History, the Catalina Ambassador Program was developed to inspire and teach students about Catalina culture and community through classroom exercises, art projects, field trips and hands-on experiences. The Catalina Ambassador curriculum was created with guidance from the museum’s Educator and Curriculum Developer, Lisa Marsh. During the six-week program, Marsh spends time leading students through particular lessons and teaching them about what it means to be a Catalina ambassador.

Select Catalina Ambassador activities can be found below. Currently, the program focuses on students in kindergarten through 5th grade, but will be expanded through 8th grade.

Special thanks to the Catalina Island Museum for Art & History Centennial Club for supporting the Catalina Ambassadors program and bringing art education to children of all ages.
