Maple Grove 4th grade students experience art
Each year, the Des Moines Art Center offers a free field trip fourth graders in the Des Moines metro to the Art Center and Pappajohn Sculpture Park. On October 1, Maple Grove fourth graders experienced this wonderful opportunity. Students spent an hour touring at each destination.
This trip was a great way to introduce students to art museums and original works of art while helping students engage in meaningful conversations about art. Students focused on how to visually analyze artwork and make connections between art and life. Hopefully, this field trip cultivated many return trips to the Des Moines Art Center and Sculpture Park for Maple Grove fourth Graders!
