Self-Guided School Visits

During self-guided visits, school groups (grades 3–12) receive expedited entry into the museum and an introduction by a Visitor Experience Team Member.

To enhance each student’s visit, educational resources created for children and families are available through our mobile museum guide. The mobile museum guide is accessible through any smartphone (headphones are not provided).

Self-guided school visits are free of cost. Each group is limited to a maximum of 30 students and must follow all visitor policies, including showing proof of COVID-19 vaccination (ages 12 and up) and photo ID (ages 18 and up).

Virtual School Programs

Co-developed by 826LA, The Broad’s free creative writing programs, Art+Story and Art+Rhyme, provide grade-school classes the opportunity to engage with the Broad 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.

For spring 2022, Art+Story and Art+Rhyme will be virtual. Led by a program facilitator, classes will view an artwork through a guided virtual experience live from the museum’s galleries and participate in discussions on the artwork’s themes.

Art+Story (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

Art+Story engages students and teachers and students in grades 3–8 in a lively discussion around one artwork on view, which students respond to through creative story writing. For the spring 2022 sessions, a program facilitator will lead a virtual live in-gallery experience where students write a story together.
 


Art+Rhyme (Grades 9–12)

“A program that takes L.A. students into The Broad museum is inspiring poetry.”
Los Angeles Times

Art+Rhyme asks students in grades 9–12 to find new ways to creatively explore art through writing poetry. Led by a program facilitator, these 45-minute discussions focus on one artwork. Classes will receive a live virtual in-gallery experience.
