Art-on-the-Move Kits

Bring the Museum Back to Your Classroom!

To extend learning into the classroom, educators may borrow Art-on-the-Move Kits, suitcases filled with hands-on teaching resources for your Native American curriculum. Suggested classroom activities are described in the associated Teacher's Packet. Kits are available for two weeks at a time, and are free for institutions with Education Memberships.

These are valuable objects! Educators are responsible for any lost or damaged items. Students are allowed to touch objects as long as they do so with extreme care.
