This weekend the Denver Art Museum is celebrating Dia del Nino, the day of the child, in part by featuring artwork and performances by children enrolled in an online charter school.
Students from HOPE Online Learning Academy Co-op will be presenting dance and choral performances, and the event will also feature an exhibit of their visual artwork. Although HOPE is an online school, students receive art lessons at various “Learning Centers” across the Front Range as part of the school’s “Arts Across Cultures” program.
The museum’s celebration, which is also being hosted by the Denver Public Library, the Clyfford Still Museum, the History Colorado Center and the Byers-Evans House Museum, is happening Sunday from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m.
The event includes free admission and a variety of child-friendly activities at all five institutions.
