San Diego Tellers
The Patchwork Players have brought their storytelling process and programs to many museum settings. They have performed at the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles, The Children's Museum in La Habra, The Antique Gas and Steam Engine Museum in Vista and for many other museums, cultural, and historical groups.

Why bring storytelling to your museum?

Storytelling in museums is a natural fit. A museum is a collection of stories.
   Who is that person?
   What is that object?
   How does that work?
   Why did they build that?

Storytelling can answer those questions by creating a cultural and historical context and sparking imagination. Storytelling brings collections alive, making them more exciting and accessible to everyone


James and Patti at the J. Paul Getty Museum

We create storytelling programs to support a specific theme, event, collection, or even highlight an individual piece.

James and Patti also lead the workshop: Bring Art to Life: Creating Stories from Visual Art.

Learn easy to use techniques for children and adults to create stories from art. Learn to see, appreciate and respond to art in creative new ways. Developed during their work with several major museums, including the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles.


On behalf of The Children's Museum at La Habra, I would like to thank you for sharing your fantastic talents with us for the Young at Art Program. Your contagious energy encouraged the students to participate and help bring the stories to life. Your performance reinforced the importance of creativity, role-play, and plain ol' fun! Thank you again for a wonderful program. We look forward to having you present more educational and family programming for us in the future!
