Art+Story and Art+Rhyme

Join us for The Broad’s before-hours creative writing programs, Art+Story and Art+Rhyme, presented by Leading Partner East West Bank with support from Land Rover, which provide young people in Los Angeles the opportunity to discover The Broad’s art collection while developing critical and visual thinking skills. Art+Story prompts children in grades 3-8 to write stories based on the artwork, while Art+Rhyme encourages students in grades 9-12 to write poetry.

High school groups will also have access to our upcoming special exhibition, Shirin Neshat: I Will Greet the Sun Again, an exhibition featuring approximately 230 photographs and eight immersive video installations that offer a rare glimpse into the evolution of Neshat’s artistic journey as she explores topics of exile, displacement, and identity.

The programs will take place every Tuesday and Wednesday morning from January through May 2020. Apply for school visits below!

(Grades 3-8)

“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.
