Master Artist Workshops

About the

Master Artist Workshops at the Alaska Native Heritage Center have been offered since the organization’s earliest years. It is with great honor that we are able to provide such incredible and important education for our community. Typically, workshops are offered about once a month, for one week and host about 12 students. The facilitator of the workshops rotates so that there is equitable representation of Alaska’s Indigenous cultural groups throughout the year. These amazing educational offerings have been made possible over the years due to the support from Exxon, The Mellon Foundation, First Nations Development Institute, the National Endowment for the Arts via the American Rescue Plan, The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s Native Connections Program, and our community of individual donors.
