The Small Museum of Folk Art educational curriculum seeks to engage, inform, and entertain visitors of all ages and abilities to the website and museum. The museum experience will be enhanced by first-person narratives, the ability to touch selected works, and by participation in hands-on art workshops.
Through written, verbal, and visual media, the collection of Jim Massey comes alive.
