Museum of Craft & Folk Art offers elementary schools an outstanding educational outreach program that brings museum quality experience to the classroom. The workshops link the arts with science, math, social science, language arts and anthropology. The workshops combine slide shows, stories, music, and artifacts. Students are given the opportunity to participate in making traditional craft projects. When there were funds, I was able to provide a couple of classrooms with the MOCFA's programs. I was very impressed with the quality of the workshops and the knowledge gained by the students. Art of Japanese Dyeing: Children will view the centuries-old proves of making cloth and kimonos. They will learn about the silk worm life cycle, cotton plant, spinning, natural dyeing and weaving. After viewing an inspiring selection of Japanese clothing samples, students will design their own cloth. African American Quilts-Children will view one-of-a kind quilts made of local quilters, while learning the importance of quilting and the Underground Railroad. Using math skills and a colorful assortment of papers, students will create a cooperative class quilt.
