Classes
​​

Throughout the year, the Indian Museum offers various arts and crafts classes which allow the community to engage in a hands-on learning experience. These classes provide an opportunity for people to learn first-hand, from knowledgeable teachers, the arts and crafts of certain American Indian tribes​.

Some of the classes featured are clay sculpture, dream catchers, loom beading and jewelry design and are taught by local American Indians.

Unless otherwise noted, classes are open to Indian Center members (at a discount) and the general public.

  • Classes will be held in the Buffalo Hall.
  • All classes include a visit to the museum.
  • Class size is limited to 12 students, please register early, there may not be room for walk-ins.
  • School-aged children are welcome, but must be accompanied by an adult.
