Our hands-on art classes are taught by artist-teachers, and frequently inspired by art on view in the museum. Since 1949 we have been teaching, inspiring, challenging, and encouraging all ages. We love to help you make the artwork you never thought you could make.

Art Day Camp for Kids & Clay Camp during Summer Break


Our fabulous summer art camps are designed for children ages 6–12. Kids enjoy high quality (and very fun) art projects, visits to the museum to see original works of art, lunch breaks, and daily recreation breaks.

Two age groupings—6–8 (junior) and 9–12 (senior)—allow kids to learn about art techniques, strategies, and materials as they make art they can be proud of.

Summer Art Day Camp info is now available!
Registration is open for all full day art, clay and art & writing camps.

Creative During COVID 19

30 Day Sketch Book Challenge

May 15—June 13, 2020 | Inspirations and Prompts

We are all at home – why not have fun sharing art? Your Creative Workshop friends Emily & Rachael have kept many, many sketch books in their lives. As they were recently looking through old journals & sketchbooks, they thought about creating a new version ~ a 30 day challenge of sorts, curating and sharing YOUR work! We’ll offer some prompts for inspiration – you share your art with us and we’ll post to our social media. Have fun, be nice, make it family friendly art & share it with us.
