Connect with professional creatives, learn a new skill, and expand your own creative practice in 1-day, 4-week, and 6-week creative classes at the Denver Art Museum. These classes are taught by practicing artists and are taught in a studio art environment in the new Creative Hub located on level 1 of the newly reimagined Martin Building.
From our monthly Drop-In programs to recurring lectures and talks with curators and museum professionals, we offer several opportunities for adults to brush up on their creativity, learn more about the art world, and to explore artworks in detail.
Monthly Online Programs
Try your hand at studying and drawing works of art in sessions led by instructor and artist Anna Kaye. Sessions are free, open to all regardless of level, and are currently conducted on the first Tuesday of each month over Zoom.
Explore your imagination and creativity through informal writing sessions led Theresa Rozul Knowles, an instructor from Lighthouse Writers Workshop in Denver. Sessions are free, open to all regardless of level, and are currently conducted on the second Tuesday of each month over Zoom.
Slow down and spend time with a single work of art from the Denver Art Museum. Discover overlooked details, pose questions, and explore ideas as we linger, look, and connect from home with art and with each other. Sessions are free and are currently conducted on the third Tuesday of each month over Zoom.
Untitled: Creative Fusions
Untitled: Creative Fusions is a quarterly collaboration with local artists and creatives to create an evening full of events, performances, experimentation, and one-of-a-kind experiences.

Onsite and Online Programs
Families, learning pods, home schools, kids of all ages, and their grown-ups can use these online resources to support your next visit to the museum.
Our collaborative community programs bring exhibitions, workshops with artists, professional development, and Creativity Kits closer to students, children and families, and to facilitate distance learning at home.
The Studio is an interactive place to spark your creativity, connect with the community, and get a new perspective on the artistic process. It is currently closed due to pandemic but when it reopens later in 2021, the focus will be on storytelling.
Access Programs for All Ages
We invite visitors of all ages and abilities to explore the Denver Art Museum in an inclusive and welcoming environment through Low-Sensory Mornings and Custom Access Tours. Note: due to the pandemic, these offerings are currently on hold.
We're excited to welcome student groups back to the museum! Please be aware our tours and workshops have limited capacities. Reservations are required for all school visits and must be made at least three weeks in advance, pending availability.
We believe in creating opportunities for artists to practice public engagement, engage with the DAM’s encyclopedic collection, and push their practice.
Are you a creative interested in collaborating with us? We’d love to know more about your work. Learn more about our opportunities below and then contact us to inquire further.
