Museums are a window to the world, and the story of America can be seen through the extraordinary art treasures of Washington D.C.’s National Mall. In a presentation and discussion led by art historian Laurel Seban, we’ll examine our national heritage through the collections of the National Museum of the American Indian, the National Portrait Gallery, and the National Gallery of Art.

About the instructor:
Laurie Seban is a northern California native with a master’s in art history from the University of California, Davis, specializing in non-Western and modern art. She currently teaches Native American art at California State University, Sacramento. For the last 20 years, Seban has also taught preschool and elementary art/art history classes, using hands-on projects that bring the art world to life for children. Seban will teach Art Appreciation: An Exploration of Contemporary Native American Art.
