With a new major grant from the Institute for Museum and Library Services, KFAC has updated and redesigned our educational offerings for the 2011-12 school year. New programs will include the following:

  • Folk Art in Kentucky
  • Traditional Music in Kentucky
  • Traditional Crafts

iPod Exhibitions
30 iPods loaded with traditional music and folk art, accompanied by lesson plans.

Pictures in Place – A Narrative Photography Project for High School Students

Students will write a personal narrative essay that clearly and authentically expresses their point of view, while focusing on their current and future place within their community in Eastern Kentucky and Appalachia. Students will communicate and support their point of view and story in sequence remembering to communicate who, what, when, where and how. Students will write their essays in a personal, creative way following the grade appropriate Kentucky Academic Expectations, Program of Studies and Core Content for Assessment. Students will then use digital cameras to take photos that visually assist their narrative essay in showing their place within their community and Appalachia.

In-school Performances
KFAC uses community musicians to provide in-school performance programs. Programs are designed to fit the needs of teachers and students keeping with Kentucky’s Common Core Content and Program of Studies guidelines.

Visits to KFAC
KFAC always offers free admission to educational groups. We will always work with teachers to customize educational tours.
