BAM’s New Remote Learning Program – ArtReach

BAM announces
New! Remote Learning Program – ArtReach
November 17, 2021

Boise Art Museum is excited to announce the launch of its brand new remote learning program for schools – the FREE Online ArtReach Program!

BAM developed this digital application to meet the current and future needs of Idaho’s teachers and students, with curriculum-aligned, cross-disciplinary educational content that meets state and national visual arts standards. BAM’s new online platform includes themed lessons with images and information about artworks, discussion questions, and art-making videos. K-12 teachers making reservations for the program receive art supplies for a hands-on art project, and free admission passes for students to visit BAM with their families.

Since the program’s launch this month, BAM has already received reservations for more than 2,000 Idaho students, tangible evidence of the Museum’s important educational role in fulfilling a need for art education in our schools, especially during our current restricted realities, while schools do not allow field trips or visitors to the classrooms. The new digital platform also allows the Museum to expand BAM’s valued school programs to reach classrooms across the state, creating equitable access to visual arts education opportunities for all.

Teachers throughout Idaho can make reservations for BAM’s Free ArtReach Program through the website at:

ArtReach is supported in part by grants from the J.R. Simplot Company Foundation, the Laura Moore Cunningham Foundation, the Idaho Commission on the Arts, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
