***In support of community and statewide efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19, the Missoula Art Museum will be closed to the public beginning March 17 until further notice. Public programming and events are canceled through May 2.
While our galleries remain closed, MAM’s commitment to celebrating the art of our time and stimulate artistic creativity has not slowed. We invite you and the children in your life to experience Museum as Megaphone, a FREE distance-learning platform that allows teachers and students to visit the museum virtually from their classrooms. Modeled after the successful Fifth Grade Art Experience (FGAE) program, Museum as Megaphone includes gallery tours, engaging discussions, and a hands-on art making activity. Click here to watch a video of the soft launch of this program with a school from St. Ignatious, Montana.
The live day launch was on February 10, 2020 and served over 150 students from 7 schools across the state, some as far as the Fort Peck Indian Reservation. In the wake of rapid school closures due to the coronavirus, and the need for social distancing, the education team at MAM quickly modified the curriculum to an "on demand" format where users can log on and access the content for free, whenever they like.

MAM offers programs that create stimulating, art-filled environments to engage the mind, spirit and heart. Classes for students from pre-school through adult offer a diverse selection of media in hands-on creativity. Classes are offered for all levels, from beginners to practicing artists.
For information about available scholoarships please contact Jenny Bevill, educator and outreach specialist.
