Christine Fogarty has been the Program's coordinator since 2000, and teaches the courses Museum Education and Schools Outreach (M S 710) and Museum Volunteer Management & Membership Development (M S 850).
An alumna of the Program (MA 2002), Christine holds a degree in Art/Art History from San Jose State University (BA 1994), and a multiple subject teaching credential from SFSU's Dept. of Elementary Education (2005). Her areas of emphasis include object-based learning, museum outreach, and curriculum development.
Her thesis, titled “Piloting an Outreach Program in San Francisco Schools: Filipino Folk Art,” involved the development and implementation of a model outreach program in San Francisco Unified schools that integrated community-focused art content with social studies curriculum standards. The pilot served over 250 children, grades 3-5, in a six-week period.
Prior to SFSU, Christine worked for over 10 years in collections and educational programming for museums in the Bay Area and Washington state, including: the de Saisset Museum at Santa Clara University; the San Mateo County Historical Museum; Pacific Science Center in Seattle, WA; The Tech Museum of Innovation; and SF MOMA. She was also a long-time art outreach instructor for the School Program at the Museum of Craft and Folk Art, teaching social studies-based art activities in Bay Area classrooms.
Christine served as an audience development committee member for exhibition, Asian/American/Modern Art: Shifting Currents, 1900-1970, exhibited October 25, 2008-January 18, 2009 at the de Young Museum. The exhibit was the culmination of a groundbreaking art history project that began in the 1990s, and on which Christine initially worked as a research intern.
