The youth activity program at the Alaska State Library, Archives, and Museum provides young people with opportunities to work with professional artists to learn artistic techniques and engage with art, history, and the collections of the Library, Archives, and Museum. These activities are sponsored by the Friends of the Alaska State Library, Archives, and Museum and are partially funded by the citizens of the City and Borough of Juneau through sales tax revenues.
Participants will form and decorate aluminum bracelet blanks using engraving tools with Charlie Skultka of Sitka. Charlie is an arts educator and recipient of the 2018 Governor's Arts and Humanities Awards' Margaret Nick Cooke Award for Alaska Native Arts and Languages award. Both sessions of this workshop are open to ages 6-18. Younger kids are encouraged to bring a helpful adult.
If you want to save yourself a few minutes on the day of the workshop, you can print and fill in this form at home. This form is good for the 2019-2020 school year.
Students should be prepared to participate for the full duration of the workshop unless it is designated as a drop-in activity. Participants should wear clothing that can get messy.
Parents are not required to stay for the activity, but should use their best judgment about whether their child needs extra support to be successful. The artists, staff, and volunteers of the youth activity program strive to make each workshop a positive experience for all skill levels, but if you have concerns about your child's ability, please contact Claire to discuss.
The Friends of the Alaska State Library, Archives, and Museum support youth in need by providing bus tokens for children and their parents who require transportation assistance. If your family would benefit from this, please contact the program coordinator.
A person experiencing a disability who needs accommodation for events hosted by the Alaska State Library, Archives, and Museum can contact the Division’s ADA coordinator at (907) 465-1300 to make any necessary arrangements.
