K-12 educators: Bring art and creativity into your virtual classroom with the MSU Broad! 

School programs at the MSU Broad have always focused on building creative thinking and exploring diverse perspectives. We believe now, perhaps more than ever, that students benefit from this time to connect with their peers through a museum experience. Using artworks selected from exhibitions on view at the museum, we are currently offering synchronous virtual field trips and asynchronous materials that can be adapted to fit your teaching context.

Choose from the following:

  • Synchronous Workshop: hands-on creative activity and discussion of an artwork (60 minutes)
  • Synchronous Tour: group discussion of 2-3 artworks (45 minutes)
  • Synchronous Art Break: discussion of one artwork (30 minutes)
  • Asynchronous material: video with creative activity prompt related to artwork 
  • Asynchronous material: slideshow with creative activity prompt related to artwork

Please email Museum Educator Meghan Zanskas at to request asynchronous materials or schedule a virtual field trip.

“I learned that you can make art out of anything you can think of.” –Third grade student

“It is amazing. Everyone involved in this program does an amazing job.” –Teacher

“People were able to do their own artwork and be able to have their own things to make that were cool and nice!” –Kindergarten student

It is a fantastic way to learn about different artists and their points of view.” –Teacher
