Hands-On Workshops at the Deaf Cultural Center

HANDS-ON Workshop Request Form

Great for Scout troops, homeschool groups, school field trips, birthday parties, and more!

Three 20 minute sessions: a mini sign language class, American Sign Language, story telling, and a craft with a deaf theme.  This workshop costs $7 per participant with a $70 minimum.

The tour of the museum is free. This usually takes about an hour and includes a visit to an apartment in the museum that is equipped with devices used by the deaf to enable independent living and a 12 minute film which helps in understanding the Deaf community.

In preparation, you could have the students practice fingerspelling their name. You can find examples of fingerspelling online.
