Denver Art Museum: Creativity Resources

For K-12 art instructors, the Denver Art Museum offers this collection of "creativity resources" that may inspire ideas for lesson plans or classroom activities. While some of these resources involve a field trip to the Denver Art Museum, this collection also includes a number of lesson plans, videos, book recommendations and other resources that may appeal to art educators located anywhere in the world. For example, one creative practice activity, "Zoom In!" suggests that educators give young children a detailed image of a small section of an artwork in order to elicit curiosity and inquiry about the piece as a whole. The lesson plan "Building Outside the Box" invites young learners to think about architecture through creating their own building with a flatform box. Instructors can filter resources by age group, resource type, time period of featured art works, 21st century skills (e.g. critical thinking; collaboration) or co-standards (e.g. language arts; social studies).
