School programs at Dia utilize its expansive collection to foster discovery and conceptual awareness for students, bringing the idea that art is an active, self-determined experience directly into the classroom, tour, or workshop experience.

Arts Education Program

Dia Beacon's Arts Education Program partnership with the Beacon City School District provides K-12 students with an intimate setting to respond critically to Dia Beacon through multi-session workshops with artist educators. 

Homeschool on the Farm

Offered in spring 2021 in partnership with Common Ground Farm, Homeschool on the Farm is a four-part series of outdoor programs that offers engaging experiences with surprising materials and processes for homeschool students ages 6–12.
