Spark your creativity and intellectual curiosity during Workshop Wednesdays at the National Museum of African Art! Workshops on the first and third Wednesdays of every month highlight a different artistic process (no workshop will be held July 4). Stay for as little or as long as you like to complete your masterpiece. All skill levels and ages welcome; participants under age 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Most of these events require no registration, and drop-ins are welcome (though please remember that all workshops are first-come, first-served events). However, due to limited space, several workshops do require prior registration. Please refer to the list above for those requiring registration.
Throughout the year, special masterclass editions of Workshop Wednesdays will be held. These masterclasses will offer the unique chance to explore select artistic topics more deeply and learn from the same artists whose work you see on our walls and in our incredible collections. Masterclasses are intended for participants 16 and up. Registration is required, and space is limited! Check back for the release of the full calendar of masterclasses.
