Museum of Art Offers After School Programs
The Huntington Museum of Art's program, Museum Making Connections: After School, provides a weekly arts education program to ten other day care centers and elementary schools in Cabell, Wayne and Putnam counties: Children's Place, Village of Barboursville Elementary, Culloden Elementary, Southside Elementary, YMCA Day Care, Milton Elementary, Prichard Elementary, East Lynn Elementary, Forrest Burdette Childcare Center, and Ebenezer Outreach.
The program follows a curriculum that builds skills in the visual arts while emphasizing 21st Century Learning Skills, recognized by the State of West Virginia as important to a child's intellectual development. Each weekly project is designed to help children see themselves as important individually and as part of a bigger picture. Projects change each year, and can include self-portraits, mask-making, painting, collage, sculpture and more.
Huntington Museum of Art's Executive Director Margaret Mary Layne is pleased to be reaching more youth. "The Huntington Museum of Art is glad to be serving the Fairfield community in a second location with this Museum Making Connections After-School program," she said. "HMA's After-School efforts resulted in more than 5,000 interactions with children in fiscal year 2011 and is part of HMA's Museum Making Connections outreach program that made a difference to more than 20,000 students in that same year."For more information, contact Da’Neisha Garrett at 304.617.6027 or contact the Huntington Museum of Art at 304.529.2701.
