Youth Art Classes

The museum offers a popular series of studio classes for children on Saturdays throughout the academic year and on weekdays during the summer.

Children learn about artist's work

The Early Explorations program welcomes children ages 5 to 7, while Contemporary Creations classes provide more advanced lessons for children ages 8 to 11.

Students explore and discuss selected works of art, developing their critical thinking skills and expanding their cultural awareness; they then create original works of art in the museum’s studio classroom.

Instructors demonstrate basic techniques, teach principles of design and guide students as they express their own ideas through a variety of media.
