REGISTRATION: Artful Observations (January 20, 2021)

Artful Observations

Program Description
The National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) is passionate about exploring the connection between visual art and history. Our arts integration initiatives strive to hone visual literacy and foster an appreciation for creative interpretation.

“Artful Observations” hopes to encourage critical thinking, careful observation, and perspective taking through guided close looking exercises. No formal art or art history training is required to participate.

Program Goals

  • Introduce participants to influential African American artists and their unique approaches to art-making
  • Engage educators in close-looking exercises for visual art and model facilitation of close-looking in a learning setting
  • Inspire curiosity about different genres of visual art
  • Explore visual observation as a tool in art historical interpretation


This program is free for participants.

Registration is for our session on January 20 at 4:00 PM EST. 

To participate in this program, participants must have access to a device with Zoom capabilities (including a microphone, speaker, and camera) and a reliable internet connection.
