Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Arts & Culture, Children's Museums

Mission: See schedule o.

Programs: The museum has 13 art-integrated programs that are part of the educational outreach program also known as the traveling museum. The presentation are made to students who cannot attend the in-house museum educational programs due to a lack of funds or transportation. One topic is star struck: a gaze at the galaxy in which children learn about physics, astronomy, and art in this program as they become planets and orbit around the sun, create glow in the dark constellations, and calculate their weight around the solarsystem. Another topic offered is "the florida seminoles," which takes collections of american indian artifacts and photos to the students.

summer camp provides a safe and culturally stimulating environment for local children. There were professional artists and performers present during the four week period. The children interacted with professional artists to learn how to do folk-art, watercolor painting, multi-cultural crafts, and clay. There is a theatre workshop with a stage performance at the end of the week.

"weaving around the world" teaches children about different cultures through the exposure to international weaving samples. "star struck: a gaze at the galaxy" provides an educational program about the solar system, an introduction to newton's laws of motion as well as constellations. "up and away: the how and why of kite flight" provides the opportunity for children to build their own kites while learning about some of the physics behind the art of kites as well as the historic uses. "first africans in florida" provides children with an understanding of africans under the spanish and british influence while providing a foundation for respect of cultural diversity. "south florida pioneers" teaches children about the founding fathers of florida and families of the areas in which they live, work and play through folklore, relics, and clothing.
