The Broad museum will host a second year of school visits for grades 3 through 12. These one-hour school visits will take place in the hours before the museum opens to the public from February to May 2017 and will offer grades 3 through 8 the opportunity to participate in the Art+Story program, and grades 9 through 12 the opportunity to participate in the Art+Rhyme program. Both programs include materials and creative writing activities developed through The Broad's partnership with 826LA, a nonprofit writing and tutoring organization. Learn about the application process below.
The Broad invited 826LA to develop creative writing exercises about select artworks on view at the museum that invite students and their teachers to explore the artists' creative process by engaging the same questions artists ask themselves when creating an artwork. These activities and materials, available in English and Spanish, offer students and their teachers the opportunity to discover the Broad collection while developing critical and visual thinking skills through narrative, opinion, and informational writing prompts. Teachers will lead their classes through discussing the artworks and the writing activity and will be provided with a guide for doing so before visiting the museum.
Applications for Art+Story or Art+Rhyme in 2017 are now closed. There will be mandatory information sessions for teachers who are accepted into the programs in January. Dates and instructions for signing up for these sessions will be distributed with notifications of acceptances.
Bus scholarships are available for a limited number of schools. Bus scholarship application information is included on the Art+Story and Art+Rhyme application form.
