This school semester, 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.
This program is free for participants. A limited number of sessions will be offered throughout the coming months. The themes for each month are as follows:
We are only allowing one class to register per time slot. Please know that when you sign up for this program, you are making an appointment with an NMAAHC educator. Our team member will only be interacting with you and your class during your session. If you have questions, please email NMAAHCEducation@si.edu.
We look forward to learning with you!
