Discover the DIA Educator Event - Art of the Ancient World & Native American Art

Wednesday, February 12, 2014 |4:30 PM – 6:30 PM

  • For Educators
Travel back in time with your students and see how art was used to express personal and cultural identities in the ancient world.  Explore the DIA’s Egyptian, Ancient Greek & Roman, Native American, and Ancient Middle East galleries with a teaching volunteer who will model the school field trip experience, highlighting options for guided visits and visitor-friendly gallery resources.  These start at 4:30pm and will be offered throughout the event. 
Meet with DIA educators who will answer questions and seek your feedback on curriculum connections, professional development opportunities and supplemental classroom resources.
Gated self-parking is available in the Cultural Center Lot (located on John R directly behind the museum) daily and the Rackham Garage Structure until 10 p.m. Cost: $5.00
School administrators and educators who are residents of Wayne, Oakland, and Macomb counties receive free admission.   All other educators can sign up for a DIA Educator Pass to receive free general admission to the museum.
