BAM Birkenstein Art Movement (spring session)

Thursdays (8 sessions) 

April 4–May 30 (No class April 18)


DAI Lincoln Park Building 

2229 W. 2nd St. 

Grades 5-7


The Birkenstein Art Movement (BAM) for middle schoolers is a project inspired by civil rights leader Jean Birkenstein. The goal of BAM is to use the creative process as a tool to support individualized learning.

Hosted weekly at the Lincoln Park Building of the DAI, the program is provided at no cost to participants. The session runs from 5-7pm and a meal will be provided. This is an ideal opportunity for students to delve into their creative interests while gaining leadership experience. We are also happy to compensate participants fuel cost for transportation. (Available on request)

Middle schoolers explore disciplines such as ceramics, multimedia, painting, sketching, photography, and murals while also learning the difference between social movements, social activism, and protests. Each year, the program offers different opportunities for students to showcase their growth and achievements. Past projects have included presentations, exhibitions, and even a visit to city hall.
