VIRTUAL Hands on art lessons in your classrooms

ARTworks is an Art Museum program designed to take hands-on art lessons into classrooms across the eastern Idaho region. Since starting the program, we have taken art lessons to over 600 classrooms in six school districts throughout eastern Idaho, reaching over 15,000 students.


Join us for a free virtual lesson via zoom. Students will use their own scissors, watercolor set and glue. The lesson is about 1.5 hrs. 

Weaving Anni Albers 
Drawing inspiration from the work of artist Anni Albers showcased in the 2020 TAM exhibit Woman Artists from the Museum Permanent Collection, students will learn how about color theory, pattern and weaving, and create their own unique woven paper design.
