Comprehend, Reflect, Create + Transfer: Incorporating Visual Art Standards into Everyday Curriculum
Participants must attend all days to receive graduate credit. Earn graduate level credit from Adams State University through BCA’s Teacher Academy. Over the course of 5 days, teachers will learn how to incorporate the Colorado Visual Arts Standards into lesson plans. Through an exploration of current and previous exhibitions produced by Breckenridge Creative Arts, participants will develop activities appropriate for a range of ages and subjects. Activities include: discussions, participating in hands-on/minds-on activities and presentations. The course may be used for salary advancement and re-certification. Upon successful completion of the course, teachers will earn one graduate credit. Register through breckcreate.org.

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.
