  1. Browse the Denver Art Museum’s Creativity Resource for Teachers website for inspiring artworks from our collection, FREE lesson plans for ECE-12th grades, and teacher resources.
  2. Schedule a DAM school tour available in English or Spanish that will inspire your students to engage in meaningful, interactive discussions and see art in a whole new way. Did you know that Denver Public Schools pre-pays for all DPS school field trips? DPS schools don’t wait. Book your DAM field trip now for free.
  3. Apply for a school tour fee scholarship and/or bus transportation scholarship available for SCFD schools. Use your savings for the art supplies your students will be begging you to buy for the classroom after your visit to the DAM.
  4. Expand students’ speaking and descriptive writing skills with our NEW Artful Literacy tour for 3rd-5th grade students.
  5. Connect with the DAM through distance-learning opportunities from the comfort of your classroom. Students will be challenged to solve problems just like artists in our collection.
