Art Stop


Art Stop provides free, hands-on art making for families during the Boulder County Farmers’ Market. Held outdoors on the front porch of the museum, creative inter-generational projects are designed to complement exhibitions within the museum, as well as the colors, shapes, and textures of the market. Don’t forget to visit the exhibitions inside the museum. Admission is always free during the market!

Art Stop is offered rain or shine, so look for Art Stop inside the museum during inclement weather.

Art Stop is generously supported by Art Parts.

ARTlab


In 2011, BMoCA launched ARTLab, an ambitious effort to engage underserved high school students in Boulder County with fine arts and an immersive studio art program. BMoCA has presented the program in partnership with Justice High School in Lafayette, Colorado since 2011, and in 2014, the museum began a partnership with Boulder Preparatory School. As Boulder Valley School District Charter Schools, Justice High School and Boulder Preparatory School serve youth challenged by truancy, expulsion, or involvement in the criminal system. Weekly classes, visiting artists, and field trips to museums and studios provide a platform for real-world engagement with the arts. ARTlab empowers teens to build positive futures by expressing themselves through art while also earning credits towards graduation. Through ARTlab, students learn about future careers in artistic fields and to trust their creative voices.
