Sold Out / Not Available
DESCRIPTION

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.
