Creative Connections

Inspire learning through a step by step exploration of modern art at the Des Moines Art Center. Bring your students from home into the galleries and into your virtual classrooms. All lessons will be designed around one work of art and an accompanying theme. Use this program to help your students build critical thinking, cultural awareness, empathy, and a connection to artwork and the human spirit! In art there are no wrong answers and experiencing artworks provides students a chance to safely explore their own creativity and understanding of the world around them. We are happy to offer this program to bring your students to the Des Moines Art Center.
