EDUCATION

Education programs at Des Moines Performing Arts engage learners of all ages, inspiring creative thinkers who are able to see the world -- and their place in it -- in new ways. 

Whether it’s a child’s first experience of live theater, advanced training for teachers, or a master class with theater professionals, more than 70,000 Iowans are impacted each year.

The result: more curious students, stronger schools, and communities that embrace the power of the arts to uplift us all.
