Tools for Learning at the Museum & In Your Classroom
Welcome to Creativity Resource, where classroom teachers, home-school educators, families with children, and anyone interested in learning can find inspiration for creativity and art!
Educators are invited to join the DAM at a ThinkSpace inaugural event. In our afternoon session, get inspired by artists' process and create a plan for a site-specific art installation at your school. Using design thinking principles and ideas and techniques from artists featured in the Denver Art Museum’s upcoming exhibition, Mi Tierra: Contemporary Artists Explore Place, you will find new ways to invigorate your school campus and your students' creativity.
