Kindergarten–5th Grade Hands-on Workshops
NAAM offers a number of informative, inspirational and fun programs for all, including students and community groups. We firmly believe interactive experiences about African diaspora as it relates to the history, art and culture of African Americans in the Northwest is a necessary component to the educational development of all our region’s children. The Museum’s goal is to nurture creative expression and critical thinking skills through a variety of engaging, interactive activities about race and diverse populations.
Grade Level: 3-6
Students will learn the story of an African American who has made significant contributions to our area – a “Local Hero” – and create a unique page for a “Zine” that will be bound and given to each class that engages in the project.
