    • This after-school program for kids in Grades K–4 is held most Wednesdays during the school year at the AAM. Museum educators lead classes that include activities in the gallery and take-home projects.

      Classes are limited to fifteen participants. Prior registration strongly encouraged.

    • In this three-part course, participants will unpack the contentious questions of authenticity, appropriation, and authority in contemporary art through various case studies and critical approaches.

      This session’s topic is “Authenticity” with Heidi Zuckerman.
      What does integrity look like? This session explores the complex notion of authenticity, taking a personal and art historical look at stories of success (and failure) in art created with (and without) a clear intention.
