Young Artists At Work

Art Stop On The Go

Art Stop on the Go engages underserved students, who are at-risk of dropping out of school, with curriculum based art education. Youth from the Family Learning Center and the I Have a Dream Foundation receive weekly after school art workshops within their communities and during the summer visit the museum for programming designed for art interaction on the museum site.

Special thanks to the generous sponsors of Art Stop on the Go: Boulder Arts Commission, Citizens of the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District, The Sheila Fortune Foundation, The Kevin Luff Family Fund, NAMTA, Target, US Bank, and Wells Fargo.


In 2011, Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art launched ARTLab, an ambitious effort to engage Boulder County’s most at-risk high school students with a fine arts program. The goal was simple: empower youth to build a positive future for themselves using visual arts as a language of self-expression and a tool for building self-esteem. School programs like ARTLab are proven to reduce incarceration and dropout rates amongst youth. BMoCA struck a strong partnership with Justice High School (JHS), a Boulder Valley School District Charter School for students who have been expelled from traditional schools for a number of reasons, including truancy and drug abuse. Located in Lafayette, Colorado, Justice High School holds its students to a high standard for graduation: acceptance into at least three colleges. BMoCA’s ARTLab program fills a gap in arts programming at the school by providing the first regularly offered fine arts curriculum to the students. Prior to ARTLab, Justice High School was unable to offer more than an art workshop here and there. Now, students can earn 3 credit hours each quarter for taking ARTLab, making their college applications more well-rounded and better-received.
