Check out BMA Virtual Tours!
The Baltimore Museum of Art (BMA) has shared with us three of their opportunities for visiting them virtually!
Enjoy an interactive, free virtual tour for pre-K through 12th-grade students! Tours include art from around the world made by artists who are Black, Indigenous, people of color, women, or from other historically underrepresented groups. Topics include Wild Nature, Artful Stories, Artists Play, Feelings, and more, for pre-K through elementary school students. Middle and high-school students can enjoy tours on Identity, Power, and Care & Community. Learn more about our tour topics and sign up for a tour.
Take your Baltimore City Public Schools 4th graders virtually to The Baltimore Museum of Art! Museum educators join you in your classrooms for three thematic tours: Portraits & Personalities, Moods & Feelings, and Stories in Art. After each tour, students participate in facilitated Make & Share activities that support social and emotional learning. Students strengthen their curiosity, creativity, critical thinking, and self-reflection through close observation of art, discussion, writing, and making. To learn more about the free program, check out our Close Encounters video for teachers! If you are a 4th-grade teacher in Baltimore City Public Schools and are interested in having your class participate in Close Encounters, apply here!
Literacy Through Art
For pre-K and Kindergarten students in Baltimore County Public Schools, these tours expand children’s communication and literacy skills by actively engaging young learners in discussions about art. Topics include My Community, Nature Near & Far, and Let’s Investigate. Learn about
