Field Trips

BCA offers a variety of programs for students to learn about art, history and culture. Whether it is a docent-led tour complete with hands-on art project or a self-guided visit to our campus, students are provided an experiential learning opportunity that fosters collaboration, creativity and critical thinking.

Though our field trips, BCA educators and docents engage students in the experience of viewing art and empower them to make meaningful connections to their curriculum, their world and themselves. Opportunities are available for elementary, middle, high-school and college students, and can be customized to align with grade-level curriculum and across disciplines.

To plan a field trip, request a tour or learn about self-guided visits, please contact Becca Spiro at 970 453 3187 or becca@breckcreate.org. You can also click here to download field trip planning information.
