Amanda and Leah

Leah Hanson
Manager of Early Learning Programs

The thing I love most about my job is watching children get excited about art! As the Manager of Early Learning Programs, I mostly work with children ages 5 and under. I teach toddler and preschool art classes, lead Parent Workshops, organize the monthly First Tuesday event and try to find any excuse to hang out with kids in the galleries.


Amanda Blake
Manager of Family Programs

I truly enjoy working with families at the Museum – I get to do so many exciting things – spending time with families in the galleries, making works of art with kids in the studio, and planning fun events for families to enjoy at the DMA.  Some other parts of my job that I love are organizing summer camps, teaching preschool art classes, planning weekend programming and Family Celebrations.
