Field Trips

Field Trips

The Art Behind Barbed Wire exhibits have been recently busy with students coming down to the museum to learn more about  the incarceration experience during World War II.  The museum saw visitations of students ranging from 7-18 years old through summer youth programs, study abroad, and field trips.  As part of their history curriculum, students from Cascade High School and the Kirkland YMCA came to view the exhibit which allowed for them to really understand the experiences while being able to enjoy these amazing works of art.

A group of a Cascade High School students are given a tour of the exhibits while being told of the historical background behind incarceration of Japanese-Americans during WWII.

A group of children from Kirkland YMCA stand and admire the artwork in-front of them.

After being inspired from the exhibits, the children from Seattle Betsuin  Buddhist Kids Summer Program created some artwork of their own.
