Art in a Box is the Utah Museum of Fine Arts' outreach to public schools program. The Art in a Box program is a multi-faceted program including Art in a Box classroom boxes and in-class presentations, the Teacher Resource Center objects and classroom presentations, pARTners classroom presentations and tours, In-District Professional Development opportunities, Teacher Workshops, and UMFA exhibits created specifically for public school audiences.
The core of the program is the classroom boxes. Classroom boxes contain curriculum-based lesson plans, reproductions of artworks, original artworks, quality art-making tools and supplies, an instructional DVD in English and Spanish, art kit refill order forms and program assessments. All the materials are contained within a large, portable storage unit that is the permanent property of the participating school or district. Bringing together all of the components of an art project in one convenient unit, each Art in a Box contains one art kit with supplies sufficient to accommodate 105 students. Participating classrooms receive a UMFA art educator-led fine art lesson, allowing both teachers and students a direct hands-on experience with all of the tools provided, expanding their knowledge and experience with the given medium.
