The Broad offers one-hour guided school visits for grades 3 through 12 that take place in the hours before the museum opens to the public. The programs, Art+Story and Art+Rhyme, are available in English and Spanish, offer students and their teachers the opportunity to discover the Broad collection while developing critical and visual thinking skills. Art+Story and Art+Rhyme were developed in partnership with 826LA.

Teachers accepted into these programs are required to complete mandatory information sessions. 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 Title I schools.

“What I like about the artwork is that whoever made it did it because it’s what they love. My favorite part was talking about the art. In the future, I want to work at a museum.” –Sophia

Led by a VSA, Art+Story programs engage students, teachers and chaperones in lively discussion around two works on view which students later respond to through creative story writing.
