Teacher Professional Development

Teacher Education

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. Come investigate artwork in the Museum, create art, and 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 read, watched, and completed at home.

Register for two optional Boise State University or Northwest Nazarene University professional development credits the first day of class.

 

REGISTRATION DEADLINE IS TWO WEEKS PRIOR TO START DATE. Classes fill quickly.
