Gallery Education

Due to Covid-19, our See Think Do! programs will be offered virtually to students and teachers September – December 2020. 

See.Think.Do! our gallery education program invites youth and adults to engage with BCA Center exhibitions through an interactive arts experience. Virtual visits begin with guided inquiry-based exploration and lively discussion with contemporary works of art. Programs conclude with suggested art activities that will inspire students to create their own works of art that explore exhibition themes, materials, and artistic processes.   

See.Think.Do!  Virtual Classroom Visits for Grades K-12  

A BCA gallery educator will “visit” your in-person or remote classroom for an engaging discussion featuring contemporary works of art from our current BCA Center exhibitions. These experiences encourage close looking, critical thinking, and thought-provoking discussions centered around exhibition themes for all ages. Virtual classroom visits are delivered on the Zoom meeting platform and last approximately 30-40 minutes. Limited to 30 participants.  

  • A live virtual lesson, lasting 30-40 minutes, that may build upon classroom learning. 
  • A gallery educator will introduce students to two to three digital images of works of art from current exhibitions with guided inquiry-based discussions that incorporate exhibition themes, materials, and artistic processes. 
  • Educators share an overview of a suggested post-visit follow-up art activity. 
  • Size: one classroom up to 30 students per online lesson. 
  • We are able to offer programs using BCA’s Zoom account. BCA will send the organizer a link to the visit for the scheduled date and time. We will also coordinate with teachers who wish to schedule the visits with a school Zoom account with BCA as a guest. 
  • Schedule at least two weeks in advance of virtual visit. 

See.Think.Do!  virtual classroom visits are offered on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Fridays, from 9:30-11:30 a.m. Custom scheduled days and times are based on availability. The program fee is $5 per student and will help to support BCA teaching artists. BCA understands the financial hardship that many schools and organizations are experiencing and we are committed to making gallery education programs accessible. Individuals and groups are invited to apply for a partial or full scholarship.
