Teacher Professional Development
BAM’s Summer Teacher Institutes focus on integrating art into classroom curricula, building teacher knowledge and skills in the studio, and experimenting with hands-on, learner-centered facilitation. Investigate artwork in the Museum and create art in the studios. Collaborate with teachers across subject and grade levels. Design projects and materials for use in your own teaching environment inspired by BAM’s current exhibitions. Participants can anticipate daily art-making projects and gallery activities at BAM, paired with articles, videos, and individual projects to be completed at home.
Register for two optional Boise State or Northwest Nazarene professional development credits.
REGISTRATION DEADLINE IS TWO WEEKS PRIOR TO START DATE. Classes fill quickly.
No classes, workshops, or programs at this time.
The Boise Art Museum offers special evening events for BAM Educator Members. Educator Evenings are a great opportunity for professional educators to preview tours, participate in hands-on projects and demonstrations, review audio/visual loan materials, socialize and gather resources for the classroom.
Full time educators qualify for a BAM Affiliate Individual Membership at $35/year.
