The Art Museum of Eastern Idaho will expand its "ARTworks" education program by sending museum-sanctioned artist instructors into 100 public school 3rd and 4th grade classrooms in eastern Idaho to teach grade-relevant lessons aligned with the Idaho Humanities Achievement Standards. The lessons will be related to current museum exhibits and provide hands-on exploration of 2- or 3-dimensional art processes, art history, and art appreciation. The ARTworks program will play an important role in strengthening critical thinking, problem solving, creativity, and self-direction among students.
