At MJDS every student is an artist

Through a partnership with the Betty Brinn Children's Museum, museum educators deliver in-person instruction combining STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, math) with traditional art education.

Students from 3K through eighth grade develop skills to express themselves through a variety of mediums. The nature of the projects couples with unstructured time, offering open-ended results and multiple opportunities for ideas to flourish.

Signature maker education programs include:

  • rocket design
  • stop-motion animation
  • "nerdy derby" crafting
  • wind tunnel construction

Students are also guided on an exploration of the formal elements of art.
