    School's out? Art's in! Join us for our vacation week workshops that provide a creative hands-on experience for ages 3-17.  Give your children a break from their regular school day and allow them to delve into fun and exciting projects in a Museum setting. All workshops include a visit to the Museum galleries and interaction with professional artists and educators. The goal of the program is to develop important skills that lead to increased creativity, helping students make their own work of art.

    Upcoming Workshops

    April Art: Day at the Museum

    APRIL 19-22, 2016
    We'll explore some of the processes used by artists in both thinking about and making a work of art. April Art offers creative hands-on workshops for youths ages 3-17. Our classes for older students (14-17) are especially designed for maturing younger artists who have a more serious interest in developing their skills. All students will visit the Museum's galleries, work with professional artists and art educators in our studios, and create their own artworks.
