Museum Instructional Designer, Robert Churchwell Museum Magnet Elementary School

In July of 2017,  I became the Museum Instructional Designer at Robert Churchwell Museum Magnet School in the heart of downtown Nashville. As the Instructional Designer, I assist faculty/staff with creating thought-provoking and engaging materials for students as well as lead our museum student project team. This dynamic group of 4th graders is currently learning how to research and curate their exhibition to be featured in the school’s museum.

Robert Churchwell Museum’s first exhibition of the year opened September 25, 2017.

Titled, “More than a Message: The Art of Graffiti and Self-Expression,” the exhibit explores the various forms of street art and features the work of two PHENOMENAL graffiti artists, Troy Duff (Nashville, TN) and Jody Harris (Atlanta, GA).

To celebrate the opening, we hosted a ‘80s themed block party during Museum Night with food, games, and our favorite ‘80s music.
