Summer at the Museums

Join us for a summer of exploring the most well-known and interesting art museums and galleries in the world. Several of them are right here in the United States! We will also explore a few that are here near home. Each week will feature fantastic museums and galleries in a specific geographic location and a few of the world famous artists whose work is exhibited there. Then we will have a great time getting messy and creative with our own masterpieces based on some of the work that we have learned about. We will work on age appropriate projects with all kinds of materials and in several mediums including: drawing, painting, clay, collage, printmaking, fibers, 3-D non-clay sculpture and design.

At the end of each week we will have a gallery opening, in which the work we made will be exhibited in the Education wing. Family and friends are invited to attend the opening and enjoy refreshments while checking out all of the fabulous kid created art work on display!
