Parent Program(s):





The Krannert Art Museum–Week at the Museum (KAM–WAM) programs give elementary school classes the opportunity to attend school at the museum for a period of time. These collaborative programs focus on integrating the arts into curricular areas with attention to best practices, Common Core standards, and grade-level learning goals. They are unique and constantly evolving educational experiences founded in partnership with community educators who value interactive, non-traditional approaches to teaching curricular areas using art at the museum.

The KAM-BAM: Day at the museum option is less-intensive, but still provides an engaging Common Core standards-based museum experience for the students. Prior to the museum day, a KAM educator will conduct an introductory lesson in the classroom.


  • One After-school Meeting: The entire teaching team from the participating school meets with museum educators for an overview of the KAM–BAM schedule and logistics, learning about the art exhibitions included and determining the overall theme for the day at the museum.
  • One Orientation Presentation: A KAM educator will lead an introductory lesson at the school for each participating classroom.
  • KAM–BAM: Students and teachers spend one day at Krannert Art Museum.

How to Apply for KAM-BAM

Any school can submit statements of intent for one or more KAM–BAM day(s). Krannert Art Museum is excited to work with new schools and will make special efforts to include new schools on its list of partnerships. When there are openings in the KAM–WAM and KAM–JAM programs, schools that have successfully partnered at this level will be given preference to fill these openings. Additionally, schools partnering at deeper levels of engagement (KAM–WAM, KAM–JAM) may submit a separate application for a KAM–BAM program if they wish to partner at this level with a different teaching team or grade level.
