Saturday, March 18, 2017, noon–4 pm / Free!
Learn about our art classes and 2017 art day camp sessions! The whole family is invited to meet our teachers and enjoy art activities and demonstrations.
Art classes are wonderful for children because they encourage more creativity than any store-bought toy. Kids classes use the museum for inspiration and discover skills they didn’t know they had.

Please note: Families are welcome in any open classroom but we ask that parents stay with children. We also may limit classrooms when they have reached capacity.
Consider giving a gift certificate for a class (or a membership, or an item in the store) to the art-lover in your world who needs that little nudge.
