Maple Grove Elementary 4th Grade field trip
Each year, the Des Moines Art Center offers a free field trip for fourth graders in the Des Moines metro to the Art Center and Pappajohn Sculpture Park. On September 26, Maple Grove fourth graders experienced this wonderful opportunity. Students enjoyed an hour guided tour at each destination.
This trip was a great way for students to be introduced to art museums and original works of art, as well as engaging in meaningful conversations about art. Students focused on how to visually analyze artwork and make connections between art and life. Hopefully, this field trip has cultivated many return trips to the Des Moines Art Center and Sculpture Park for Maple Grove fourth graders.
