The DIA Away is visiting Orion Township

The DIA Away is visiting Orion Township- DIA Away will visit the Orion Center,  1335 Joslyn Road from September 21-23, 10 am – 4 pm daily.  DIA Away is a free, mobile interactive classroom for students and a creative exploration space for people of all ages, presented by the Detroit Institute of Arts, made possible with support from residents of Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties. DIA Away brings educational, hands-on art experiences to schools, community centers, senior facilities, fairs and festivals throughout Macomb, Oakland and Wayne counties.

DIA Away is a fully furnished, vibrantly designed 53' double-expandable trailer that will provide a rich educational program beyond the museum's walls. Inside, participants will discover some of the ways artists think and then have the opportunity to try out creative thinking skills at digital and hands-on stations. Visitors will be surprised and inspired to discover the connections between themselves and the ways artists think and work.

The design of the space and selection of artists and activities were made with students and teachers in mind as a key audience. DIA Away is designed to coordinate with school curriculum standards; elementary, middle and high school teachers will find direct links to both the National Visual Arts Standards and Common Core Standards for English/Language Arts.
