We will explore color by examining works of this famous artist and then try some art of our own.

What Teachers Have Said

Our 2nd grade at Burton Elementary has visited the ARTitorium annually for the past five or six years and it is an amazing experience for our kids. They love learning about different artist and styles and applying those styles to their art work. We also love the variety of choices of STEAM activities in the interactive area. The bus grant has been essential in our ability to attend each year. Our experiences at the ARTitorium have given us initiative to incorporate artist study and hands on STEAM activities in our classrooms. We love the ARTitorium and plan to continue attending with our 2nd graders each year.

Burton Elementary 2nd Grade Teacher

The staff is incredible to work with every year. They are understanding of a Kindergarten student’s needs. They are well organized. and ready for us every year when we arrive. The grants for transportation are greatly appreciated. The bus grant helps defer some of the cost so we can continue to bring our students to the ARTitorium. Our school is in a rural community. We have a low socially economic status. We have a high migrant population that has not had exposure or opportunity to this type of learning experience. This was exciting for students and offered exposure for some that may not of had that opportunity. Thank you!

Aberdeen Elementary Kindergarten Teacher

I have had the opportunity to take my students on field trips to the ARTitiorium in Idaho Falls for the past 3 years. My students and myself have always learned so much and had such a great educational experience each time we have attended. The art project, with step by step instruction, has been so good for my students, especially for those who think they are not artistic. They are able to learn something new and feel accomplished and creative in what they have drawn and learned. Also, the hands-on activities have such great resources for learning.

The staff is very accommodating, organized, and so friendly to work with. I have appreciated the grants that are offered for transportation, so that my students have the opportunity to attend such a fabulous center.

Mountain View Elementary 3rd Grade Teacher

This field trip is one of the best we attend all year! The staff makes it easy to register and accommodates our schedule. They also provide grant opportunities to help pay for transportation, which is greatly appreciated. The field trip itself is wonderful. They have very interesting lessons that are appropriate for first graders. The students have the opportunity to learn art specific content that they will not learn at school. The hands-on activities are wonderful and interactive as well. This field trip is valuable for all ages and learners. Regardless of academic performance, all students are able to participate, be creative and feel successful.

Ririe Elementary 1st Grade Teacher

Each time we have gone, my students have learned valuable art skills and enjoyed exploring the hands-on art exhibits. They can express their creativity in a fun and safe environment.

Every year we have attended the staff has been incredible to work with. Grants for transportation that are greatly appreciated and make the experience possible. The staff is well organized and can accommodate larger groups of students; even allowing the students a place to eat their lunch during the winter.

Midway Elementary 2nd Grade Teacher

I have had the privilege of taking multiple field trips over my sixteen years of teaching. I really enjoy the way they have an activity set up where they read a story, watch a video, or have an activity to learn about various kinds of art. After learning about the art, they have an art activity where the students then get to use what they learn to create their own art! These activities are always so fun and well organized!

The ARTitorium has such friendly and enthusiastic staff that presents the material in a fun way and are always so great at keeping the students excited and engaged! After the lesson, the students love to explore and play in the open area with the slides, light up blocks, touch screen devises, etc. There is so much to do that our field trip to the ARTitorium is always a highlight for these students for the year! I am grateful every year when my students get to go and experience the ARTitorium for the first time.
