Programs and Classes

Programs at the Modern

Like many things that have defined our schedules and activities, the Modern’s gallery programs and classes must reconfigure. We are excited to introduce learning alternatives online. Please find additional opportunities here.

All programming at the Modern relates to the collection, architecture, or special exhibitions. Each gallery class, studio workshop, art camp, family project, or discussion group is designed for a specific audience to enhance participants’ experiences and expand their ideas about art, the world, and the self. 

Our studio-based programs enlist the talents of North Texas artists to lead conversations and activities that apply and reinforce what is seen in the galleries, building, and grounds.

The Modern’s unique programs for children emphasize learning through direct observation of art and thoughtful art activities inspired by the permanent collection and special exhibitions. Area artists, museum docents, and education staff design and lead these programs, introducing children to some of the key ideas and techniques behind modern and contemporary art.

Free sketchbooks for children are available at the information desk or online for enjoyment at home. These sketchbooks, titled Ten Pages, are for children to record their ideas and inspirations while looking at works of art in the Modern's galleries.
