The Detroit Institute of Arts is committed to providing the highest quality art education programs available. From artists' talks and lectures, to hands-on creative workshops, we offer a wide range of programs that provide enjoyable and enriching experiences for visitors with all levels of familiarity with art. Our educational programs, materials and services reflect an audience-centered approach to viewing art and a learner-centered approach to the learning experience. Our educational strategies are derived from four overarching principles:
- Art is for everyone;
- Learning is a lifelong process;
- Knowledge is based on experience as well as formal study;
- Best practice is based on understanding our visitors and employing effective teaching strategies.
A new training class for teaching volunteers is forming soon. Contact Sue Troia at email@example.com for more information or to receive an application.
