World History teacher Carolyn Reitz brings her classes to the Museum monthly to use the galleries as an extension of her classroom. The main goal for this class is to focus on works of art as primary resources for understanding culture and history.
The Dallas Museum of Art hosts numerous performing, visual, and literary artists for short- and long-term collaborative projects and programs. Conversations and workshops with these artists are designed for students, offering opportunities to learn about the careers of professional artists.
Students participating in the afterschool Video Club meet with local filmmakers, discuss and learn techniques, and create film shorts using the Museum's collections, building, and programs as inspiration. In 2009, students created film shorts inspired by works of art in the Museum's collections. In 2010 students created short documentaries featuring schools participating in the Young Artists Program for The Art Ball.
