Artist at Home School Outreach

National Museum of African American History and Culture - Center for Teaching and Learning , Washington, DC

Sold Out / Not Available

This fall, the National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) is offering a digital, interactive art program for teachers and their students in grades 3-8. Adapted from our summer program, “Artists at Home” is designed to engage students in hands-on art making and conversations about African American artists and different genres of visual art.

Led by an NMAAHC educator, each hour-long session will focus on a unique visual artist and encourage discussion around their work. Students will also have the opportunity to participate in a hand-on art project using household materials.

Program Goals

This program is free for participants. A limited number of sessions will be offered throughout the months of October, November, and December. The themes for each month are as follows:

  • October: Genre Painting with Clementine Hunter
  • November: Collage with Romare Bearden
  • December: Abstract Painting with Alma Thomas
  • We are currently only allowing one class to register per time slot. Registration for November sessions is upcoming. If you have questions, please email

    We look forward to learning with you!
