Extra! Extra! Special Go van Gogh program for fifth grade classrooms

This year, Go van Gogh is offering a special program exclusively to fifth grade classrooms during the month of September.  Art of the American Indians is inspired by our special exhibition Art of the American Indians: The Thaw Collection, on view until September 4.  We are excited to offer a program with such strong ties to the fifth grade Social Studies emphasis on  American history.

See you at the library!

Every summer, we bring Go van Gogh programs to Dallas Public Libraries.  These one-hour programs are free and open to all ages.  Below are pictures from our visit to Preston Royal Library with the Art of the American Indians program, inspired by the DMA’s special exhibition.  Check our schedule to see when we’re visiting a library near you!
