Classes & Workshops

The museum is a place to not only look, but also to do. Classes and workshops provide new ways to actively engage and continue learning. Past workshops have included Navajo weaving, dyeing fibers with native plants, foraging for wild greens, pottery, and poetry. Watch the MNA calendar and Facebook page for future workshops. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the only workshops currently available are fully online, either held via Zoom or offered as videos.

Writer’s Group via Zoom

Alternating Wednesdays, 5 pm – 6 pm

Free to museum members and staff, this writer’s critique group continues to meet on Zoom. Writers share something they are working on, read it aloud, then hear the thoughts and responses of others. All genres and styles are encouraged, including prose and poetry, fiction and nonfiction. For long projects, like a novel or other book, writers bring one chapter at a time.
