Confluence in the Classroom, an education program that Lillian Pitt helped to create, connects K-12 students with Native American artists and educators to do meaningful creative projects related to the Columbia River system.
About Confluence in the Classroom
Confluence in the Classroom is primarily funded by foundation grants.
Students participating in the program engage in a variety of activities, including the creation of traditional craft items such as tule mats, as well as modern-style murals, multi-media explorations or other creative pursuits which help students express their connection to the river.
Students may also be involved in field trips to a culturally significant place and may participate in various other events that can help them gain a better understanding of the cultures of the Columbia River system.
The Lillian Pitt Education Fund
In recognition of her lifetime of achievements, Confluence has created the Lillian Pitt Education Fund to support this important work into the future. Proceeds from this fund will strengthen this arts education programming that introduces kids to the cultures, history, and ecology of the Columbia River system.
Your contributions to the Lillian Pitt Education Fund helps achieve the mission to connect people to place through art and education. Thank you!
