About this Event
The National Museum of African American History and Culture is debuting a digital, interactive program designed to engage students in hands-on art making and conversations about African American artists and different genres of visual art.

Each week will feature a different artwork and artist--stay tuned to our web page for more upcoming session details!

Led by NMAAHC educators, each session will focus on a unique visual art piece and encourage discussion around a central question. Students will also have the opportunity to participate in a hand-on art project using household materials. This program is designed to be fluid and conversational. It welcomes students from grades 3-12. 

Program Goals

  • Introduce students to influential African American artists and their unique approaches to art making
  • Engage students in close looking exercises for visual art
  • Inspire curiosity about different genres of art and artists' techniques
  • Provide kinesthetic learning opportunities and cultivate creative expression
