Hands-on, minds-on learning! These studio classes allow young artists ages 2 to 18 to explore the museum’s collections while discovering their own creativity. Each week includes studio time and gallery visits. Want to take a class at the same time as your child? Check out Studio Classes for Adults on Saturdays.
My Very First Art Class (Ages 2–4) Young children and their favorite grown-up are introduced to art, the museum, and verbal and visual literacy in this playful program.
10:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m.
Play like an Artist (Ages 4–5) Learn to look at the world like an artist. Explore line, shape, color, and more through drawing, painting, collaging, and building. We’ll see and make something new each week.
Curiosity Lab (Ages 6–8) Explore the galleries to discover art from near and far and be inspired to create colorful landscapes, beaded sculptures, pattern-filled screen prints, decorative and functional fabric bags, shiny coins, and fun, imaginative 3-D scenes!
Creative Challenges (Ages 9–13) Develop your creativity and show off your personal style as we complete weekly art challenges, from finding imaginative ways to use ordinary objects to trying new techniques and incorporating unusual materials. We don’t know what you’ll make, but we know it will be fun!
