Art Afterschool with the Boca Raton Museum of Art
Our signature arts outreach program, Art Afterschool, provides dynamic visual art experiences for K-12 students. We partner with local youth development organizations like Youth Activity Center, Boys & Girls Club of Boca Raton, and the School District of Palm Beach County to offer free classes for students to explore their creativity, expand their worldviews, and gain confidence through art-making. Our teaching artists guide students through hands-on lessons inspired by artworks from the Boca Raton Museum of Art collection, and each session culminates in a class field trip to visit the Museum.
The Boca Raton Museum of Art partners with Palm Beach County schools to offer Express Yourself!, a visual arts and language arts integration program for elementary school students. Express Yourself! supports classroom teachers in developing and facilitating art projects that advance language skills and encourage self-expression. Express Yourself! is supported by the Golden Bell Education Foundation and our current partners include Hammock Pointe Elementary and Poinciana STEM Elementary.
We invite K-12 students to come explore the Museum and see our collection in an extra-special way by combining a guided tour with an interactive art-making experience at EdMornings! Our trained docents guide students through a themed, inquiry-based tour of the galleries. Then, a skilled teaching artist leads students through a studio art workshop to create their own artwork inspired by what they’ve seen. All tour themes connect to Florida State Standards.
