Friends of the Alaska State Museum kicks off Youth Workshop Series

Posted: September 26, 2012 - 11:03pm

The Alaska State Museum exhibit “Dan DeRoux’s History of Alaska” will provide inspiration for two separate youth workshops at the museum on Oct. 13.

The morning workshop, “Redrawing History,” runs from 9:30-11:30 a.m., and is geared to students in grades K-2. Workshop facilitator MK McNaughton will lead students through an examination of DeRoux’s work, as well as the objects and animals found in his paintings. Students will also handle and study objects from the museum’s educational collection and learn how to use soft charcoal and charcoal pencils to create drawings inspired by what they’ve seen.

DeRoux himself will lead the afternoon workshop, which runs from 1-3 p.m. for students in grades 3-6. This workshop, called “Out of the Box and Off the Wall!” challenges students to have fun exploring the creative process, language, intuition and chance using mixed media.

These workshops kick off an entire series of workshops called “Exploring the Arts,” part of the Friends of the Alaska State Museum youth workshop program, paid for in part by the citizens of the City and Borough of Juneau through sales tax revenue.

Admission to both workshops is free. Registration is required; call the museum at 465-2901.
