SCHOOLS & COLLEGES

BOM offers various programmes that can be tailored to fit any Key Stage and can be held either within or outside of the classroom. Below are some examples of what we can do.

We offer guided tours of our current exhibition(s) and can provide talks focused on different careers within the arts – and they’re completely free of charge!


Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths (STEAM)

BOM takes the STEM subjects and adds art into the mix, resulting in engaging experiences that cover all Key Stages.

Currently BOM is working in sites across Birmingham…..

  • In collaboration with Baskerville School and University of Birmingham, we are researching the benefits of teaching science with art and by artists. Over a full academic year we will assess the challenges, opportunities and benefits of this approach.
  • We are also working with James Brindley Hospital School Group to explore new models of education, using technology and art to innovate and enhance the curriculum and school experience.

These sessions are led by artists and creative technologists who have Enhanced DBS Checks and have experience in leading workshops.


Workshops and Projects tailored to your needs

Led by BOM Fellows (artists, scientists and technologists based at BOM), these workshops can be tailored towards Key Stages, class sizes & student ability. Depending on the workshop, they can be carried out at BOM, in your classroom or at a school event.

The workshops and projects offer a wide range of activities, ranging across a variety of specialities which include:

  • Programming and coding
  • Creating real-world interactive games
  • Analogue/digital photography

Arts Award

Currently in its 10th year, the Arts Award is a programme associated with Arts Council England. Tailored towards young people up to the age of 25, it supports them to grow, connect with and take part in arts communities. There are five levels, from Discover to Gold, that young people can complete whilst compiling a portfolio, experience and confidence.

As an organisation, BOM fully supports the Arts Award and encourages young people already working on their award to work with us to complete it.
