MCN Cultural Experience
The MCN Cultural Experience is a virtual or in-person cultural experience for students in classrooms and communities. The ACE Cultural Academic Specialist utilizes Mvskoke artifacts and lesson plans to bring this cultural learning opportunity to life for students in grades Pre-K through 12th Grade. During each encounter, students will initiate a craft or project related to the lesson topic.
Cultural Labs provides a learning experience centered on art experimentation. Students will gain insight into Mvskoke art through hands-on activities such as pottery, moccasin making, painting, creating cornhusk dolls, beading, etc. These labs culturally enrich students’ knowledge of Mvskoke people while also incorporating a variety of styles and methods of contemporary Mvskoke artists.
ACE Field Trips will be offered beginning in Spring of 2022 to grade 5th-12th. More information coming soon!
