Arts & History Immersion Program
The Arts & History Immersion Program is an educational collaboration between the Salem Art Association and the Bush House Museum. Each year, this program provides a unique educational experience to more than 800 underserved fourth-grade students attending some of the most challenged Title I schools in Marion, Polk, and Yamhill counties.
These all-expenses-paid field trips include an educational tour of the Bush House Museum, and the chance to view an art exhibit and engage in relevant hands-on art activities at the Bush Barn Art Center. The activities are not only fun for students but help teachers enhance their curriculums by supporting state standards. For 75% of students, the Arts & History Immersion Program is their first visit to a history museum or an art gallery.
